What's In Bloom?

It's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - August 2011 edition, and here in the Mid-Atlantic Zone 7a our gardens are at last getting a reprieve after many many weeks of hot dry weather during the month of July. Currently the following perennials are in bloom in my garden:

Anemone 'September Charm'

Daylily (unknown cultivar)

Fountain Grass 'Hameln'

Scabiosa 'Butterfly Blue'

Butterfly Garden
The real standout of the moment are the Acidenthera, a fragrant flowering bulb native to Ethiopia. I'm not sure if they're a keeper, but for now I appreciate having them since the rest of this bed is winding down.

Hosta 'Royal Standard'

Hosta 'Fragrant Dream'
