Spent half an hour weeding and cleaning up the hellstrip this morning. The autumn sedum have started to bloom; I think this one might be Autumn Joy, but not positive. It’ll bloom from now until November, is drought-tolerant and generally requires nothing more from you than that you enjoy it.
I also continue to really enjoy the pink achillea / yarrow — it mostly went brown a month or so ago, but I trimmed those off, and it’s now put out a second big flush with lots of bright pink blooms.
I may have gone a little pink-heavy in the hellstrip, given that the Fairy rose is also blooming there, but that’s okay. I should think about what would be blooming blue or purple there at this time for next year. It’s not quite dahlia time yet.
