5 monarch #butterflies + 1 hummingbird + scores of #bees = our Seven Sons #tree! Covered in small #white, #fragrant #flowers, our Heptacodium is a #pollinator magnet, attracting so many #bumblebees that the whole tree buzzes. This #fall bloomer boasts year-round interest, with persistant flowers fading to a dusty pink, exfoliating bark and attractive foliage. The #nectar is an great late food source for migrating #monarchbutterflies, and we've counted as many as 12 on the tree at once! #pollinatorgarden #buzz #bugslife #gardenlife #plants #plantlife #beehappy #bombus #fallgarden #monarch #whiteflowers #ctgrown #tinywings #garden

Isn't she #lovely? Beautiful 'Isabel Maraffi' is #new for 2018, joining our ever-growing reblooming #daylily collection. Gorgeous double #peach #flowers grow to 32 inches tall, blooming in midsummer, and like all Hemerocallis are #happy in #fullsun or #partsun. #beautiful #plantsmakepeoplehappy #daylilies #hemerocallis #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #perennial #orangeflowers #orange #gardenlife #garden #ctgrown #DeepRiver #Connecticut

Here comes the sun... Well, our Mexican #sunflower at least! Our Tithonia 'Torch' is ablaze with late season #color, attracting #garden visitors and pollinators alike. Butterflies especially like the flat #orangeflowers for nectar feeding, bumblebees love the fluffy pollen, and what #gardenlover can resist the soft foliage? #tallplants #annual #tithonia #mexicansunflower #orange #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #ctgrown #DeepRiver #Connecticut #onfire #pollinatorgarden #gardenlife #inbloom #fallcolors #fall #fallgarden

Cool #fall mornings are coming soon (we hope!), conjuring memories of falling leaves, #warmcolors, frosty grass, and bright mums. The leaves may not be falling just yet, and the grass is still green, but our #mums are here to get you thinking #autumn! #chrysanthemum #annual #redflowers #red #burgundy #falldecor #fallgarden #fallcolors #mumsofinstagram #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #inbloom #ctgrown #DeepRiver #Connecticut #gardenlife #garden #plantsmakepeoplehappy

We encourage our #shrub Hibiscus to reach for the #sky! Our #lavender blue Rose of Sharon is a beautiful compliment to the early #fall #garden, with soft, double #flowers that our #bumblebees adore. Easy to prune and shape, #nursery visitors will see our tree-form #hibiscus just inside our driveway, stretching up to the clouds. #autumn #fallgarden #gardenlife #roseofsharon #plantlife #plants #instaplant #instaflower #pinkflowers #ctgrown #DeepRiver #Connecticut #bluesky

And now for something completely different, can you identify this #plant? It's a Trivia Tuesday, plant lovers! We grew this unusual #annual from seed, and it #blooms in a range of blue and mauve to cream. Fine foliage will #grow 18-24 inches tall, and balloon-shaped seedpods follow the delicate #flowers. #triviatuesday #tuesdaytrivia #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #inbloom #blueflowers #whiteflowers #ctgrown #DeepRiver #Connecticut #whatami #plantsmakepeoplehappy #unusual #unusualplants

The ultimate dried #flower for the #fall, our Hydrangea paniculata is a mass of #cream and #white in #latesummer. Huge cones of papery #flowers on arching stems fade to tan and pink as the days shorten. Once dried on the #shrub, the clusters can be cut and used in #cutflower arrangements, lasting almost indefinitely. #flowerarrangements #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #hydrangea #hydrangeapaniculata #whiteflowers #driedflowers #gardenlife #garden #DeepRiver #Connecticut #ctgrown #plantsmakepeoplehappy

Stay cool and safe today, #Connecticut! The blazing #sun and high #heat are no match for our #fiery Calendula 'Zeolights', with #hot #orange and yellow #flowers on 1-2 foot stems. Beautiful for #fall containers, or right in the #garden. #annual #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #orangeflower #inbloom #calendula #onfire #DeepRiver #ctgrown #connecticutphotographer #plantsmakepeoplehappy #gardenlife #summerdays

Has anyone else seen these #unusual #orange #bugs in the #garden this season? Believe it or not, Atteva aurea is a #moth, the Ailanthus webworm, a #tropical #pollinator native to South America. While feeding, the #wings of this #nectarcollector are tightly folded, looking nothing like #moths we are used to seeing. The brown caterpillars are #goodbugs, and feed exclusively on the highly invasive Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus). #insect #bugslife #plantlife #plants #coolbugs #gardenlife #striped #sedum #nature #natureupclose #DeepRiver #connecticut #connecticutphotographer #summer

Stunning is the best word we can use to describe our new Calluna 'Winter Chocolate', now in peak #bloom at the #nursery. Heather is a very short #shrub or semi-woody #perennial, preferring #fullsun and dry winters. Tiny soft #leaves can be seen in red, silver or green, with red, white or #pinkflowers.This #beauty features #golden #foliage that turns a rich chocolate brown in the winter. #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #foliageplant #garden #gardenlife #heather #calluna #inbloom #latesummer #gold #yellowgreen #naturallight #nofilterneeded #nofilter #DeepRiver #connecticut #ctgrown #connecticutphotographer

Fall #blooming Anemone have a habit of getting out of hand in the #garden, but our #new 'Curtain Call Pink' is a more well behaved sort. Shorter in stature at only 14-18 inches tall, this bright #pink #perennial prefers partial sun, with tidy mounds of foliage. Oh, did we mention all #perennials are 20% off? #salealert #sale #plantsale #horticulture #agriculture #plants #plantlife #pinkflowers #instaplant #instaflower #ctgrown #DeepRiver #connecticut #shoplocal #anemone #latesummer #fall #fallgarden #gardenlife

'The Garden By Moonlight' By Amy Lowell . A black cat among roses,  Phlox, lilac-misted under a first-quarter moon,  The sweet smells of heliotrope and night-scented stock.  The #garden is very still,  It is dazed with moonlight,  Contented with perfume... . - - - #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #phlox #phloxpaniculata #pinkflowers #purpleflowers #perennial #tallplants #summer #gardenlife #poetry #amylowell #ctgrown #DeepRiver #connecticut #plantsmakepeoplehappy
