Late-summer-to-fall bloomers

“Every flower blooms at its own pace.” – Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem, 2011

In Sunday’s column (September 1, 2019), I shared suggestions from retired nurseryman, author, and horticulturalist Baldassare Mineo for five late-summer-to-fall blooming perennial flowers and shrubs.

Here they are with pictures from Baldassare’s garden, Italio Gardens, in Medford:

1. Hardy begonia (Begonia grandis ssp. evansiana)

2. New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae ‘Alma Potschke’)

3. Daphne (D. xtransatlantica ‘Blafra’ or ‘Eternal Fragance’)

4. California fuchsia (Epilobium, formerly Zauschneria)

5. Tall sedums (Sedum spectabile hybrids)
