A big flowered clematis 'Henryii' has rebloomed against the brick wall in front.
A 'White Chiffon' Rose of Sharon has been blooming profusely since early August, and continues to put out big silky blooms in October. Not as many flowers now, but it is still producing pure white hibiscus blooms even as the leaves yellow.
The fall blooming Nippon daisies are not a surprise, they always come out in October. All summer the clump is a green mound, and then these fresh white daisies open just when the itea behind them is dark red.
I didn't realize the white iris 'Immortality' would rebloom at the same time as the Nippon daisies, and that's a nice surprise. They are peeking out on the left side of this round garden, and the two punches of clear white on either side of the red itea makes a pleasing balance.
From a distance they are bright pops with little detail. The only way to photograph the white iris is after dark in the rain.
And the white blooms of clematis viticella 'Alba Luxurians', which are down facing and delicately streaked, also photograph best in the rain.
But look at how 'Alba Luxurians' scrambles. It was cut to the ground after blooming in early summer. Now, in October, it is back, bigger and fuller and bloomier.
By the way, I was surprised when I looked closely at the swan basket with the orange pansies sitting on the wall under the clematis. Look --- the eyes of the swan match the pansies. Eep.
