Missouri Botanical Garden Notes

September 1, 2015

Cosmos-sulphureus-ladybird – 12 to 18″
Low growing – lots of color late in the year.

Rudbeckia-missouriensis  – falls over so give it room – still blooming, but no insects on it.

Shining Blue Star – this one they cut down to the ground – others they kept large.

Shining-Blue-Star

Purple Dome New England Aster – this is not trimmed – about 48″wide and 30″tall. I’m going to replace a lot of my NEA with this variety.

Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii Goldstrum – seems more upright than Missouriensis.

Partridge Pea – notice that they cut theirs back about 50% – this keeps it from flopping over.
