August to September

 

By the end of August and into September the light changes and becomes softer and arguably this is when we feel the garden at Coton reaches its zenith.  There is so much to see, with a new cast of flowers making an appearance at this stage - cimicifugas, asters, late aconitums in pale and dark blue, eupatoriums dark red & white, purple vernonia, schizostylis in shades of red, pink and white, late kniphofias, late agapanthus, sedums, the second flowering of roses and varieties of hydrangeas.   The colours become less strident and pale colours more luminescent in this gentler light.  It is a lovely moment in the garden.
