The Driveway Garden at the end of September

Pink Sedum 'Autumn Joy', white flowered flat-topped aster (Doellingeria umbellata), double purple Aster hybrida 'Peter III', purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) and white striped grass Miscanthus sinensis 'Dixieland' in the Driveway Garden this week.

September is slipping away and October is arriving here in Pennsylvania.
Here is one pretty scene between our car and door in our Driveway garden this week...


Large, pink hardy hibiscus can be seen in the background... and white variegated Lamium maculatum nicely fills out the scene. Flowers are lovely in a garden, but it is good foliage that makes it truly beautiful.

For more on our Driveway Garden, see our garden map.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Christina! Most gardens are instantly improved by adding some nice foliage plants for anchors.

  4. Looking spectacular for September. I agree wholeheartedly about Sedum - Classic! I live how you've under planted with lamium. I grow Lamium but always struggle to make it look good in the garden. I might just borrow your idea for next year :)
