September's Purple Rain

The favorite color in my garden palette in Early Fall is Purple.

Datura among Tithonia.

Duranta and a Spicebush Swallowtail.

Persian Shield on the left, Salvia leucantha coming into bloom on right.

Loropetalum flowers are  more pink that purple but the leaves turn purple in fall.

Purple Heart and Salvia farinacea 'Victoria' from seed in its third year.

Last, a little preview of coming attractions: Gulf Muhly Grass is forming blooms.

-- Purple is favorite at the moment as nights cool down and days are cloudy. We had a quarter inch of rain today.
