Every year I am a big fan of lavatera trimestris 'Silver Cup.' This rose mallow is covered with large pink flowers and they are excellent in bouquets.

Rudbeckia 'Denver Daisy' has been another great performer in my garden this year.

And year after year 'Annabelle' hydrangea has never let me down. Besides its manageable height and long lasting flowers, the fact that it blooms in part shade is a big plus.
It has been a hot and dry summer and some of my hostas exposed to the sun have not faired well. 'Sun Power' hosta has lived up to its name, providing a nice burst of color all season.

I never go without a tall blue ageratum for cutting. They are not bothered by disease or bugs and are very long lasting in bouquets.
