            Tricyrtis hirta (visually similar to my T.formosana but different colouring, growth habit and the blooms are bigger)...............

            As the days shorten Tricyrtis hirta 'Tojen' looks better and better...........

            Salvia 'Black and Bloom' is another that gets better with the shorter days and less heat.........

              They both look better when the sun is out. The persicaria flowers really pop in sunlight. Edit : will upload some more flattering images if we get a bright spell

                  Just noticed flower buds about to open on Edgeworthia Chrysantha. Picture to come when they do but they are early. :)

                              @roders does the gaillardia come back every year?
                              I grew some from seed back in March and only one has flowered, and then not much.
