Over on GardenRant this Caryopteris is being shown off, along with whatever my ranting partners have blooming today. In this photo five caryopteris are massed for a nice late-season pow. And here's lots more about them.
On the right are two pink
'Knockout' roses, newly planted in the process of my backyard make-over. With no fertilizer at all, I think they've performed very well in their first season in the garden.
Next up on the left is the Hydrangea paniculata 'Tardiva,' a favorite of mine. Here's more about them.
On the right are some hardy begonia or Begonia grandis. Here's more about them.
