Of course, there were a few flowering plants that deserve notice.
The grasses put on their best show in late summer/early fall too.
The foliage plants do all the heavy lifting at this time of year.
While some succulents go dormant at this time of year, most look great year-round. Several caught my eye this month.
|The succulent bed I planted along an area of the front slope last fall, a portion of which is shown above, is coming together. Two Echeveria cultivars, E. 'Blue Atoll' (upper left) and E. 'Blue Sky' (upper right), glow in the sun.|
