  • Anise hyssop
  • Tall thimbleweed
  • Bush's poppy mallow (aka prairie wine cups)
  • Bottle gentian
  • Stiff gentian
  • Prairie alumroot (aka heuchera richardsonii)
  • Bradbury's monarda
  • Obedient plant
  • Western Indiana physic
  • Slender mountain mint
  • Orange coneflower
  • Wild petunia
  • Switch grass
  • Prairie dropseed

I'm also moving some New England aster and plains oval sedge out there from elsewhere in my yard, plus ordering two dwarf bottlebrush plants.
That’s a good list. I’ve started a new bed and transplanted some old garden phlox into it and native azaleas. Have a bag of native grass seed, some Baptisia alba, Beach Rosemary, dotted horsemint, rattlesnake master, rudbeckia, and coreopsis.

My evergreen creeping phlox, which normally bloom in spring, have been blooming through November and still have some blooms on them. I have never seen this occur before but it's a welcome sight around the waterfall.

Coming in late here... but I did my perennial adding in the early fall.
A very large number of pachysandra for the beds close to the N&NW facing front/side of the house.
I'm hoping they'll take well and flourish because nothing else has without sun before 11AM.

I want to recommend a plant I had never heard of until this year. Although it is supposedly hardy only to zone 9, I’m in 8b and it is still going strong, despite a few frosty nights. It’s a tibouchina.

It’s about 3’ tall and was covered with very vibrant purple blossoms all summer. I expected to treat it as an annual, but so far, so good.

Oh dear, I seem to have just ordered 20 Dahlias for the spring. I have not grown them before, but I have been wanting to give them a try. I’m right on the cusp of having to dig them up in the fall, so I probably will not.. Im in 8b/9.

How nice. Given the unseasonable weather we've been having you should be able to get them in the ground earlier than usual.

I just planted 2 hybrid tea roses today. Two big sturdy bare root plants from Costco for $15.99. Just a little carrot to keep me going. Is it spring yet?
