Persicaria Blackfield still looking good I think
Salvia Uliginosa continues to flower whilst the helenium in the foreground is in need of deadheading
Looking good @Verdun as always.
Tricyrtis hirta (visually similar to my T.formosana but different colouring, growth habit and the blooms are bigger)............... Tricyrtis hirta by longk48, on Flickr As the days shorten Tricyrtis hirta 'Tojen' looks better and better...........

They both look better when the sun is out. The persicaria flowers really pop in sunlight. Edit : will upload some more flattering images if we get a bright spell
