Called at a garden today on the way home ; had an interesting late colour planting scheme in a small moist border under dappled shade .
The rich blue of the herbaceous Clematis heracleifolia interplanted with the yellow waxy flowers of Kirengeshoma palmata .
I am always impressed by some of these later flowering perennials ; no need for anyones garden to be dull at this time of the year
Sounds wonderful, and very tasteful!
Might do something similar myself , but mix in some small evergreen ferns as well !
Teaming those with Aster Monch might look very good.
When you don't even know who's in the team
My own specimen of herbaceous Clematis heracleifolia is in flower from mid-June to October. A lovely blue colour. It is currently sited between an clump of 3 Thalictrum delavayi 'Album' and a specimen of Tradescantia x andersoniana 'Sweet Kate'. I find that the blue of the C. heracleifolia and that of the T. andersoniana do not go well together, so I'll have to think of a better association.
Hmmmm. Everything in my garden has been battered by rain and flattened by wind. It's not so much late season colour as finding anything not shredded.
That is very unfortunate ; luckily my own perennial borders are protected by thick hedges . It's virtually certain that as soon as the beautiful autumn colour arrives , so do the gales .
Suppose we shouldn't moan really when you think of what has just devastated the Caribbean !
Your white Thalictrum sounds good . I recall years ago having a white herbaceous Clematis ; (recta)??
You are quite right. Besides, I didn't have to choose to live on the coast.
Some pics of my Thalictrum delavayi ‘Album’
There are a few white herbaceous Clematis: Clematis integrifolia Alba, Pamela, etc. See https://www.thorncroftclematis.co.uk/quick-selection-lists/herbaceous-clematis.html
I had no idea that there was such a wide variety of herbaceous Clematis.
