    Plants for late-summer colour

    Discover some plants that will add colour to your borders in September and October.

    Crocosmia
    Formerly known as montbretia, crocosmia are spreading plants featuring clumps of strappy leaves alongside sprays of trumpet flowers in shades of red, yellow and orange. They for several months and looks great as part of a hot border.
    Japanese anemone
    Japanese anemones are ideal for the no-fuss gardener. The large, long-lasting flowers in pinks, mauves or white are held on strong, medium-tall wiry stems that don't need supporting.
    Stonecrop
    Sedums, stonecrop or ice plants (many of which are now known as Hylotelephium) grow reliably in hot, dry positions and are much loved by bees. Leave the flowers on the plant after they've died, as they'll continue to look attractive in winter.
    Pentsemon
    Penstemons have short stems of large bell-shaped flowers in purples, pinks and blues that flower for a long period. They're drought tolerant and pretty hardy, although it's still advisable to take cuttings as a back-up, which you can then overwinter. Cut back plants in spring.
    Phlox Paniculata
    A classic late-summer border perennial, Phlox paniculatacomes in a wide range of colours, and one or two have variegated foliage. They're reliable and trouble-free plants.
