What's in bloom at the Toronto Botanical Garden

>Sept 9 -23


In the Perennial Border you will find:
Hibiscus ‘Kopper King’ (Perennial hibiscus); still growing strong, Kopper King has been flowering non-stop for over a month even though each plate-sized flower lasts no more than a day or two

In the Perennial Border – North:

Sedum spectabile ‘Neon’ (Stonecrop); Sedums are popular among northern gardeners as they are easy to grow and very hardy. This selection is more compact than some with bright neon-pink showy flowers

In the Perennial Border:

Caryopteris x clandonensis ‘Worchester Gold’ (Blue Beard) with Sedum ‘Autumn Fire’ (Stonecrop); Worchester Gold has warm yellow to chartreuse foliage with lavender-blue flowers from late summer to early autumn, showen here with Autumn Fire, one of the best stonecrops.

In the Garden Hall Courtyard – Water Channel:

Hydrangea quercifolia (Oakleaf Hydrangea); native to the American south, this slow-growing hydrangea shrub is a great compliment to any border for its long flower display and characteristic oak-leaf foliage which turns many shades of bronze with autumn; shown her with Miscanthus sinensis ‘Super Stripe’

In the Arrival Courtyard:

Miscanthus ‘Purpurascens’ (Flame Grass); this excellent cultivar has great fall colour with strong upright habit and extreme cold hardiness for Canadian winters
