Some New Blooms

By John Markowski @jmarkowski0

Helenium autumnale (Sneezeweed):
Some new blooms
I've struggled with Sneezeweed for a long time now but may have finally found the right location. The ugly "legs" are disguised by other plants in front of them and they have each other for support (three are planted closely to each other).
Because of that, I skipped on cutting them back in June to control their height this year. The true test will be in the next week or so as all of the blooms emerge:
Some new blooms
Chelone lyonii:

Boltonia 'Pink Beauty' is another perennial I typically cut back in June to hopefully prevent it from toppling over when blooming in late summer but completely forgot to do so this year. So far so good. Maybe that proactive pruning wasn't necessary after all:

Not necessarily newly blooming, but some new visitors I couldn't be more psyched to see on Asclepias curassavica (Silky Gold Milkweed):

 Sedum 'Autumn Fire' rounding into form:

Miscanthus purpurascens (Flame Grass):

Pennisetum 'Hameln':
Some new blooms
And my very young Andropogon gerardii 'Red October' has thrown up some blooms in its first year (bless her heart):
Some new blooms
This grass will rule over all of the other grasses within the next two years. I am so stoked in anticipation.
