September’s Most Stylish Party Goers: Fashionably Late-Season Flowers . . .
Northern Climes can be a Challenge for Rose Lovers, but Rosa de Rescht Likes to Close Out a Party, Ending the Summer Season with a Â Midnight Kiss from Jack Frost
Though sweet Summer shall stay with us a few more days, Autumn’s perfume swirls about in the chilly evening air. There’s no denying now that the seasons are about to change. This is the time of year when foliage takes center stage, but a few blossoming starlets will remain, occasionally stealing the spotlight in the late show, from now until deepest freeze.Â Windflower,Â Fairy Candles,Â Yellow Wax Bells,Â Asters, Bush CloverÂ andÂ Toad Lilies; some of my favorite flowers bloom at this time of year.
I’ve featured a few of these favorites before —or related cultivars— but as they are coming into their own again, I thought their delightful blossoms worthy of a September review. Come take a stroll and enjoy the warmth of a late summer afternoon . . .

Thank you, Emily! Hope you are enjoying the season. x M
Lovely. Romantic. Dramatic. So absolutely Heathcliff.
But, for some reason (and pretty sure you’ll know why; ) I’m particularly drawn to the Asters and Goldenrod in “Moody Overcast of Changing Seasons…”
Are those wonderfully intensely purple plumes in the background the Wooly Rush then?
Amazing as always – thank you!
Hello Deb, Yes. The Wooly Rush is taking on a purplish cast in that light. I grow more and more fond of it, with each passing year. Wild things truly are the most beautiful. xo M
