Sweet Autumn Clematis
Sweet Autumn clematis is a favorite because of its late bloom. Strong and trouble free, it exhibits a blanket of small 1-2 inch flowers in September-October. Can grow to 15-20 feet.
Lily of the Valley
Spreading, low-growing perennial with deep green foliage and delightfully fragrant flowers in spring. Best in rich, moist soil; tolerates dry soil in shaded areas. Leaves about 8" long. Tiny white bell-like flowers hang from arching stems.
The above plant is about 8 years old and though it returns each year, it hasn't spread. Our gardener isn't sure as to reason why.
A very quick growing woody, deciduous twining vine. Grows to 25 feet and more, with dark green compound leaves. Long grape-like cluster of blue-violet blossoms in spring (usually late March or early April in HSV)
You see many of these plants in Arkansas and in the Village. Very showy and pretty. Flowers in late March and April and May. Low, 4 to 6" singular ground cover. Excellent for borders in beds or rock gardens. Does best in dry sandy locations.

Canna generalis. Common Name is Canna Lilies. These plants have flowers on spikes above very large leaves. Colors range from white to shades of pink, yellow and scarlet. Cannas bloom in midsummer until cold weather. They do best in long, hot summers. They'll grow in gardens, or in pots or large tubs on terraces. Hardy to northern zone 7.
Canna - King City Gold
Plant the rhizomes in spring after night temperatures stay above 50-60 degrees F, and cover with 3-4 inches of soil. Can be started indoors a month earlier. Cannas grow to 4 to 5 feet. Spread is about 1-1/2 feet.
A very pretty flower is Clarkia amoena. More commonly called Godetia. Doesn't grow well in the south but you will find them. This grows best in cool weather. Does not like high humidity. Why are we including it here? We found it in Little Rock and think it has a satin gentle beauty,
Another Little Rock find, Alstromeria. We've found them in at
least four colors.
Blooming in early November
