What's Blooming in My Central Wisconsin Garden?

Wood's Pink Aster

Clockwise from upper left: Aster Alma Potschske, mountain mint, sedum 'Xenox', obedient plant, green seed pods of turtle head

Clematis 'Sweet Autumn'

Seed heads of echinea nitidi and the last of the trumpet vine flowers.  Saw a hummingbird today(9/24/2013)!

Aster, I think 'October Skies'

I've had this "identified as 'Clara Curtis' daisy...
...and this also.  Two completely different plants, the first is more aster-like, this one is more like an anthemis.

An unidentified lilac aster; it is tall, pale, without a differentiated center.

Rebloom on the possible Eden rose
Solidago 'Fireworks'
Gaura and sedum 'Neon'

Filipendula still looking interesting.

Late-blooming lancifolia hosta


  1. Do you like sweet autumn clematis. It is pretty but I've been discouraged from planting it because of its invasive tendencies.

    1. I've never seen one bigger than the two I have personally grown, nor has one set seed for me, although I have heard people tell of them setting seed. Perhaps a lot farther south than IL, they may be able to set seed, but blooming so late I'm not sure the seed has time to mature. I really like mine. It is a wonderful plant and the pollinators are in heaven near it.
