September Bloomers

A pretty view of the ever popular "Jacob Cline" monarda. This perennial spreads like crazy for me and I try to stagger the height of blooms by pinching it here and there. At peak, it reaches 5 1/2 ft. (fence cap is at 6ft.) and really stands out against the white pickets. It makes a great cut flower, not to mention a hummingbird magnet!

Any zinnia fans out there?  If you're looking for a long lasting annual that is pretty much deer proof, plant zinnias.  Lots and lots of 'em!  This variety has smaller flowers but grow 2-3ft. and here it is still blooming strong in mid-September.  Don't forget, the more you cut, the more they bloom...yeah!!
