    We are moving it the final phase of blooming plants, in fact some are practically finished. Still, blooms are so nice to see, I will take what I can get.
    The wisteria is blooming for the third time this year, albeit on a small scale.

    This Rudbekia lacinata is nearing its end now:

    The Schizostylus is looking pretty but the clump is very small, with only one blooming stem. It was a gift from a man, but he did not know exactly which one it was. That is to say that there at least three similar looking “kafferlelies.” The petals have a discreet lavender tint to them, while he thought that it was a white variety. Perhaps that is normal. I don’t know, but this South African beauty really is attractive to see.

    Other things still blooming are heleniums, clematis and sedems.

    Very pretty Sjoerd. I love your Wisteria, do you know the variety? Mine usually blooms twice a year, and it is Wisteria Macrostachya 'Aunt Dee'

    Netty, I cannot find the lable, but I believe that it is the Wisteria sinensis ‘Prolific’. I got that a couple of years ago on a sale table. It had one bloom in it at the time…but that was enough to let me know that I would not have trouble with it blooming. This is a big deal because wisteria’s can be slow to bloom and sometimes not to bloom at all.

    Thanks much , Loggie.

    Cheers, Pacnor.

    Very beautiful Sjored. I love the Wisteria. My dream flowers. The Schizostylus is so delicate - very lovely.
