Slideshow: A rainbow of colour in a Saskatoon garden

By
Carolyn Kennedy

These are a few of the fall flowers that Jeaniene loves:

‘Annabelle’ hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle’): “One of the few hydrangeas we can grow here,” she says. Its summer white turns to green then fades to brown in fall. “The big globe of flowers dries into a perfect little circle; it’s architectural and interesting.”

Autumn Joy sedum (Sedum [Herbstfreude Group] ‘Herbstfreude’):
This common upright sedum, Jeaniene notes, has “an odd rusty colour that doesn’t really go with anything.” She loves it on its own, set off against one of her garden’s huge boulders and some ornamental grass.

Silene ‘Max Frei’: A good rock-garden plant that’s a “sprawling mound of cotton candy,” with long-lasting pink blooms through the fall.

‘Blue Eddy’ cowlick onion (Allium senescens ssp. glaucum 'Blue Eddy'Blue): Its blue-grey leaves are only a few inches long, but they grow in a swirl, or eddy. They have purple pompons in the fall. (shown in picture)

Cotoneaster (Cotoneaster spp.): An upright shrub with little blackberries, “It’s foolproof,” Jeaniene says. “It always turns red.”
