Pacific NW Flower Basket in October

I like this way to remember what was blooming in the garden in a certain month in a special way:
to pick one flower from each plant.
October is still pretty colorful.
This is what it has:

Hydrangeas 'Endless Summer', 'Nikko Blue', 'Angel's Blush', 'Princess Lace', 'Ice Crystal' (oakleaf), 
Roses Knock-out, 'Carefree Marvel', 'Mr.Lincoln', 'Mother's rose',


Fuchsias 'Double Otto', 'Dollar Princess', 'Quasar' and NOID,
assortment of Dahlias, Japanese Anemone 'Honorine Jobert',
assortment of Chrysanthemums and Asters, 

Sedum 'Autumn Joy', Rhododendron 'Honey Butter', Heuchera, Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost', 
Salvia 'Black&Blue', Salvia 'Mystic Spires', Wild Cyclamen, Verbena rigida 'Polaris'

 Verbascum  chaixii 'Wedding Candles',  Perovskia atriplicifolia, 
Snapdragon 'Eternal', Dianthus, Nicotiana, Primrose, assortment of Geraniums.

The best bloomer right now is Campanula poschkarkyana 'Waterfall'. This Serbian bellflower has been blooming repeatedly through the summer and fall. Outstanding bloomer!
Fuchsia is another superbloomer.





I hope your October basket has some colorful gems too!

  5. Looks like a lot when you gather it all together in one spot. If it is anything like our plot, the blooms seem few and far between when viewed in the landscape.
    This is a nice approach for looking at October as a season of bounty.

    1. Hi Ricki! Some parts of the garden look more colorful than others. Our front flowerbed looks almost summery because of fuchsias and roses. The front border is nice because of the blooming campanula, the side border is full of mums. Other parts have just few blooms.
