Quiet Incidents

So much happened in the garden in August, these photos bring a bit of calm. The vertical seedheads of Physostegia virginica like miniature towers, with silvery Pycnanthemum muticum, a couple of big leaves of Silphium terebinthinaceum on the right and, at back, Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues'...

Panicum 'Cloud Nine' as background to Rudbeckia maxima seedheads ...

Panicum 'Shenandoah' in flower, its leaves ruby streaked. The Physostegia and Joe Pye are out of focus, but the three plants make an interesting study in vertical structure. Click on the photo to see fireworks ...


  1. Great combinations! I am enjoying my garden grasses right now, too. Cameron (Defining Your Home Garden)
