Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for September 2022.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, I am pleasantly surprised by the blooms in my garden a week or so before the autumnal equinox which this year arrives on Thursday, September 22, 2022, at 9:04 P.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere.
Now with that tidbit of info, let’s look at some blooms!
First up is a tall sedum, variety unknown. This one is a little floppier than some because it gets shade most of the afternoon.
Please note the subliminal messages in my garden art. Laugh. It’s good for you. Believe. It’s good too to believe that it will all work out in the end.
Onward. Walk quickly now. I’m not the only one with a bloom day post. Scroll to the bottom in a few days and check out other gardens via the links.
After finishing this post, I realize I left out mums and some hosta that are still blooming. And asters! They aren’t quite in full bloom yet. And phlox! There’s still some tall phlox hanging around. What else did I miss?
Now, what’s blooming in your garden as we reach the middle of September? Join us for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day and show us. So easy and everyone is welcome. Post on your blog on or around the 15th of the month about what’s blooming in your garden, then leave a link below and a comment to tell us what you’ve got.
And remember, as Elizabeth Lawrence once wrote, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year.”
And with so many great fall flowers, there’s no reason not to have blooms in your garden now!

Happy almost autumn Carol! Your garden is looking lovely and I especially love the ‘Limelight’ Hydrangea, one of my all-time favorites! Your roses, ‘Rozanne’ Geranium and leadwort are also gorgeous, and yes…marigolds are underrated, but a great plant. Here in zone 7a, the roses are still going, with lots of Sedum (different varieties), hydrangea, lilies, and more. Come for a visit!
Happy September! I may have the same sedum as you. I was able to grow marigolds in Kansas and Arkansas but haven’t had the best luck with them in my years in New York State, so I enjoyed yours instead. Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers and I just purchased a couple of pansies, too. Isn’t it great when we have so many flowers that we can ignore some of them?

You’ve got a good showing for September! While succulents in general do well in my climate, Sedums are the exception – I think they like a bit of winter chill that I just don’t have to give them. Sadly, I’ve just given on on Hydrangeas due to their water needs.

I do love that sedum and the hydrangea and…well, all your blooms. Happy Bloom Day.
Nice! Interesting to see that your Begonia, leadwort, nicotiana, and colchicums are ahead of mine, as I don’t have any of those in bloom. I haven’t heard that Geranium ‘Rozanne’ is difficult. Both of mine have been doing well for several years now.

Always love seeing your beautiful garden blooms! Thanks for hosting this meme.

Lots of blooms you’ve got there! That hydrangea is magnificent. I wish I had a spot for that hardy begonia, but coming up late as it does I would put a shovel through it for sure—forgetting it was there and thinking I had a space available in which to plant.
Hi Carol, nice to see all that fruit of your efforts, both metaphorically and in terms of figs. Now we have another month before the weather starts to interfere…
Molly Williams says
‘Rozanne’ is my favourite geranium! I appreciate the reminder about marigolds – I’m going to make a note to use them more next year. Thanks!

I’m interested to know that others have also had difficulty with ‘Rozanne.’ I tried it when it was first on the market, but it never survived the winter here. I’ve just planted it again for the first time in many years (on the grounds that our winters are warmer now); I’ll be interested to see how it does.
Thanks, again, for hosting this monthly flower fest, Carol!
