In my Wisconsin zone 4/5 garden morning is my favorite time of day. September brings a chill in the air, the colors are intense and you know that Autumn is here. After the Black-eyed Susans it was a challenge to get color throughout September. It took me years to get it the way I wanted it, mostly with perennials. Hope you like some of my choices.
