Ligularia dentata 'Othello'. Two plants were in the bed by the front door when we moved in, pretty sure this is the same variety. Blooms August-September. Height 24", Spacing 30-40". Hardy to zone 4. Shade to part shade. Likes moist conditions.
Cranesbill Geranium A sea of rose-pink flowers over a tidy clump of delicately cut foliage high. A wonderful edging plant. Pictured here with Agastache Golden Jubilee. Completely drought-proof once established. Likes full to part sun.
