Echinops, with bee. I grew these from seed a couple of years ago, and, although they've been really good at attracting insects, they have grown enormous and are crowding out some other plants. Plus the bottom two thirds of them are quite ugly, so I think they're going to go once they've finished flowering.
The first gladioli to flower. I staggered the planting of these so we should have a couple in flower the whole of the rest of the summer.
Rudbeckia bought last year and flowering for the first time.
Japanese anenome bought four years ago. This is doing really well and has loads of flowers on it, which keep on coming into the autumn as long as I remember to dead head.
