In anticipation of the cold weather we cut down all of the summer flowers in the perennial garden this weekend. Things are looking pretty bare. Fortunately, the grasses are still blooming. They add so much movement & color.
My research into fall perennials continues. This gigantic 8 foot tall flower is called a Perennial Sunflower, not to be confused with the big-blooming annual sunflowers. ‘Lemon Queen’ produces gorgeous creamy-yellow blooms in late summer and early fall.
My grandchildren adore the huge annual sunflowers during the summertime. I am excited to offer them another option for the fall that is just as much fun.
