Different areas of the garden have differing colors for fall: Cassia alata is blooming golden yellow along with mixed zinnias which were planted late. This small area has blue porterweed that came into bloom late, the Cassia (candlesticks) and my fav, the late zinnias. Not seen are some gomphrena and salvia coccinea that were seeded in when the zinnias went in, additional reds.
This last area has been a butterfly magnet with not much blooming except for 3 different shades of pentas, from rose to palest pink, and wax begonias for a little edging. Now the pinks are joined by the light crimson blooms of Saliva elegans (Pineapple sage). Leaves of the pentas and the pineapple sage are very similar in shape, so it just looked all summer as if the pentas foliage was more lush. Now red spikes of blooms are threading through the pentas. Spiky lemon grass to the back lends contrast.
