What's Blooming Now - Color
Continues Into October!
October 15, 2010
The changing fall leaves are not the only colors here at White
River Gardens. Take a stroll throughout the Gardens and you will
still see some of our plants from previous What’s Blooming
segments going strong, as well as some new additions. This week,
our featured flowers come to us from the Ruth Lilly Shade
Garden. If you are skeptical that you can add color to your
shady spot, just take a look at Solidago caesia (Blue Stem or
Wreath Goldenrod), Aster cordifolius (Blue Wood Aster) and
Begonia grandis (Hardy Begonia). Also found in the Ruth Lilly
Shade Garden and recently added to a bed at the front doors to
White River Gardens is Monkshood (Aconitum carmichaelii ‘Ardensii’),
with its beautiful blue hooded flowers.
