Late Summer Beauties…


As we head into late summer some of my favourite plants come into their own. I spotted two of my favourites in the nursery at Knoll Gardens yesterday…

The drop-dead gorgeous Echinacea purpurea ‘Augustkönigin’ and the stunning Aster ‘Wunder von Stäfa’.

A beautiful combination which looks great weaving through a meandering stream of Miscanthus ‘Flamingo’ and Verbena bonariensis.
