September blooms in Toronto

Fall blooming perennials in Toronto: early autumn bloomers


September in Toronto is lovely. It usually still feels like summer with temperatures in the mid to low 20 celsius range and little humidity. And my birthday is coming up in a few weeks, but I digress!

The stars in the perennial garden are from the Asteraceae and Malvaceae families but others can join in as well. Here are some pictures of early autumn bloomers hardy to zone 5 Toronto. There's a mixture of mainly perennials, some annuals, some natives. 

Who says there's little going on in the garden this time of the year?
