September Intensity

/, Flowers/September Intensity

If your borders are looking tired and you get the feeling everything has peaked a few weeks ago here is some intense colour that can continue well on into Autumn. The ultra violet blue of Ceretostigma is an incredible sight and almost too much for the eyes. As the cobalt summer sky is fading to that ethereal misty sky of autumn this flower is like a song of blue, as if all blue of summer skies have been caught in its petals and are bursting forth. It is an excellent one to two foot ground cover and is the only plant that will stand up to the brightness of dahlias at this time of year. It likes a sunny spot but will reluctantly flower ever in dappled shade though it can get straggly. It likes moist free draining soil. It originally came from Asia.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
