What’s Beautiful Now: Nearing the Equinox

Posted in What's Beautiful Now on September 5 2018, by Matt Newman

The long summer sun won’t last much longer in our area. With only a few official weeks left of summer before the autumn equinox on September 22, we’re getting in as much time in the sunshine as possible, as are our collections. This week is likely your last opportunity to catch our late water lilies blooming in the Conservatory Pools, just as the dahlias in the Home Gardening Center become some of the highlights of September. The hibiscus and hydrangeas in the Perennial Garden are another bright spot amid the greenery.

This dynamic garden is a spectacular show of color and texture in the summer heat. Look for artful combinations of sunshine yellow Patrinia scabiosifolia and mulberry-red Sanguisorba ‘Cangshan Cranberry’.
