Bloom Day II
Spiranthes cernua 'Chadd's Ford', probably the easiest, along with Bletilla striata, of all the hardy orchids. It's in danger of being shaded out by Nippon or Montauk Daisy (which was once Chrysanthemum nipponicum, but is now Nipponanthemum something-or-other, I think) and the ubiquitous Begonia grandis.
Below is Colocasia 'Black Magic' in combo with more favorite coleus. One project for this weekend is to start rooting cuttings of these.This is another fall favorite, Pineapple Sage (Salvia elegans or rutilans...too lazy to check.) P.S. - Phillip calls it 'elegans', so that's good enough for me.
