Flow­ers for early au­tumn

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

1 As­tran­tia ma­jor (mas­ter­wort) has del­i­cate, in­tri­cate flow­ers in white and pink, and blooms well into the au­tumn.

2 Iris sibir­ica ‘Sil­ver Edge’ is an easy-go­ing gem that loves a shel­tered spot with fer­tile soil.

3 Op­u­lent ori­en­tal pop­pies with their rich colour and pa­pery leaves look spec­tac­u­lar early on, but go dor­mant in late sum­mer, so sur­round them with an­nu­als and later-flow­er­ing plants for seam­less colour.
