    Stipa Gigantea here too, still looking good, salvia 'Penny's Smile' been  flowering since May and still going strong and a lovely clematis 'Kaiu' which covered two huge shrubs and flowered all summer, that's not including all the daylilies of courseimage

  • 1. Aster frikartii Monch is still not quite finished, it has been a mass of flowers since early summer.

    2. Various alstroemerias, still flowering well after many months.

    3. Daylilies.

    Lupinus Masterpiece, Salvia Amistad and Dahlia HS Wink. 3 is never enough.

    Consequences, altered cases
    Broken noses, altered faces
    My ego altered, altered egos
    Wherever I go, so does me go

    Delphiniums (not named ones, but they have got to be blue)

    Rose constance spry

    Rudbeckia indian summer - which is still flowering its socks off now

    ......next year it'll be a different 3 .....thats why I love gardeningimage

     

  • I'm googling all of these, I can see my wishlist getting a lot longer, I know Verdun choosing only 3 is tough, shall we do top ten?image

     

  • Kathy I love daylilies but have so little space in sun, is there one that will cope with shade? The two Salvia's mentioned so far are gorgeous and that Lupin Punkdoc- I love, love, love it, what a colour!

    Primroses, Arthur Bell roses and a blue geranium I don't know what it's called but it's  not the one with the pointy leaves and pansies with angry faces.

    In London. Keen but lazy.
