I love the names of the flowers of late summer: Helianthemum, Leucanthemum, Argyranthemum, Chrysanthemum and Rudbeckia, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Achillea, Echinacea. I am a late convert to the yellow, orange and red charms of these flowers and this time last year there was nothing once the roses had finished in July but now there is a fledgling August border with shades of gold, copper and bronze. The orange Crocosmia has done well for the first time - although as a good Cornish girl I prefer to call it Montbretia. The sweet little rosy red Helianthemum and some gorgeous rich amber Echinacea are putting on a brave show and will be joined by others by next year. There is much room for improvement - two yellow Rudbeckias have keeled over with shock and died, clearly not team players, and there are gaps at the back where I need some tall Achillea. I think that I need to go garden visiting to get some inspiration. Do you want to come with me?
