What's in bloom at the Toronto Botanical Garden

>The week of September 2-7

>In the Entry Garden you will find:
Calamagrostis brachytricha (Korean Feather Reed Grass), a stately ornamental grass with blooms up to 25 cm which performs long after other plants have faded.

In the Show Garden North:
From Proven Winners, a grouping of new plant introductions including a coleus, Solenostemon scutellarioidea ColorBlaze ‘Dipt in Wine’, left, paired with Sedum telephium ‘Xenox’ (Stonecrop) and below them Heuchera ‘Venus’ (Fancy-leaf Coral Bells).

In the Show Garden South:

Acer tataricum ssp. ginnala ‘Flame’ (Amur Maple), a small bushy maple that is great for Northern gardens. Its leaves turn from green to red then yellow in fall.

In the Water Garden West
Hibiscus ‘Kopper King’ (Swamp Rose Mallow) one of the more popular perennial hibiscus for its white flowers with pink veining and dark coppery foliage.

In the Water Garden North:
Physostegia virginiana ‘variegata’ (Obediant Plant). While this plant is known for its late summer flowering and is prone to run, this variety stays in place and provides lovely variegated foliage along with lavender blooms. It is shown here with Verbena bonariensis (Brazilian Verbena) with its upright branching stems and magenta purple flowers and Sedum telephium ‘Black Jack’ (Stonecrop), a dark foliage variety.

In the Water Garden West you will find:

Hibiscus moscheutos ‘Carafe Grenache’ (Rose Mallow). A popular perennial for the late summer herbaceous border and completely hardy to Northern gardens, it dies back to the ground in fall and is one of the last to show in spring. In the background is Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii ‘Goldsturm’.
