With mornings and evenings getting cooler and cooler, the blooms are looking rough around the edges. However, several plants have re-bloomed in the last couple of weeks. I mentioned in an earlier post that the flower carpet roses are covered with blooms. This week, the Purple Passion rose I bought in Chicago last spring has put on a burst of bloom. This rose suffered from a disease earlier in the season. Its foliage looks good now–shiny and not too holey, but the blooms are a bit ragged. As happened last year, the English larkspur (Delphinium elatum ‘Pagan Purples’) is putting up more blooms in the fall after seeming to die mid-summer.
