Behind the house right now we have such a nice mix going on: (back to front) cotoneaster franchetii, Queen Elizabeth rose, calamagrostis brachytricha, tall pass-along purple asters, yellow rudbeckia, and Lemon Queen sunflower (front left).
Seed pods of southern magnolia
Erodiums, double and single. They are in pots because they are tender and have to join the inside crowd for the winter.
Lablab beans on the trellis in front of the house. At least they were happy with the heat.
