As it's tricky to get late summer colour in the garden, I took these pics at Cambridge Botanic Garden to show what was in flower in late July and a bit different from the usual suspects of dahlia, red-hot poker, echinops, etc.

Hopefully the labels are readable! (I should have blanked them out for a very trikcy 'what's this plant?' :))

Loads of plants you don't see at B&Q. Get a few of these in the ground, and NGS will be asking you to open for charity! :beer:
