Garden Tuesday ~Russian Sage ~Flowers ~Sedum Autumn Joy

Sidewalk Shoes Russian Sage

Russian sage is a fabulous garden plant.  It gets so big, it’s almost like an airy shrub.  Very delicate with lovely purple spires of flowers.

Sidewalk Shoes Sedum Autumn Joy

Again, Sedum Autumn Joy is the star of my fall garden.  I can’t get enough of it.  Luckily it’s really easy to propagate by dividing.  When one clump gets too big, we just divide it up in early spring, keep it well watered, and boom, you have lots of sedum autumn joy.

Sidewalk Shoes Dried Hyssop

I believe that this is dried hyssop.  Whatever it is I like it’s deep brown color in the fall garden.

I don’t know what this plant is.  I bought and planted it before I started recording things in my Evernote Garden Journal – does anyone have any ideas?  I love how delicate it is.

How about you what’s in your garden this week?

Please join me for Garden Tuesday.

My Russian Sage went wild this year which is surprising because basically we had a pretty dry Summer. I divided it and planted some in pots to give away at the community yard sale next year.

I'm sorry I can't help you with that light and airy plant. At first glance I thought it was in the chamomile family but I don't think so.

My garden is still going strong, Pam. I have Zinnias, Poppies, Snapdragons, Portulaca and of course the Celosia still blooming just to name a few. I do believe my garden is confused much like me, lol...

Thanks for sharing, Pam, enjoy:)

My Sedum Autumn Joy is now in its full glory. I do believe your mystery plant is some kind of Aster. It is very sweet.

I think it is some type of aster. It's very pretty.

It hasn't rained properly here since June. The back yard is baked hard like concrete and the gusting winds have ripped all the lemons of my tree. The weeds, however, continue to flourish despite my disapproving looks. Thank goodness other folks have nice gardens I can enjoy.
