Late Summer Blooms

From Spring to Fall, our cost-share recipients have put in remarkable work on their raingardens. The benefit pays off in the form of a beautiful yard for them, and an improved watershed for everyone else! 

Late summer is a great time to get one last good look at what's blooming before most plants go to seed and prepare for winter. We all knew it was coming -- but it's never easy to face the changing season. Here's a look at some of our cost-share gardens to help your transition into cooler weather. 

Late summer blooms to watch for include: 

Purple Coneflower

Turtle Head 

Butterfly Milkweed

Asters

Anise Hyssop

Cardinal Flower

Little Bluestem (seeding)

Black-eyed Susan

Joe Pye Weed

Russian Sage

... and more!
