Douglas Justice's August 2020 in the Garden - UBC Botanical Garden blog is up now, with lots of good photos, and links from each plant mentioned to Garden Explorer, where there are more photos. As an aside, Douglas has also started the August 2020 In the Neighbourhood - UBC Botanical Garden - same deal, good descriptions and photos, and links to Garden Explorer. Here is a little dalliance on the entrance plaza, on the way to the plants written up in the blog. Actually, this first I didn't even notice, if you can imagine, until I was driving out. I asked someone who was walking by for the name, but what she said wasn't right. I think maybe Phlox? Here are two favourites - Gladiolus murielae and Lilium 'Casa Blanca' (I think - it's the only lily that's supposed to be on the entrance plaza). The x Chitalpa tashkentensis [Edited - as Ron B says below, the cultivar is 'Pink Dawn'] is in bloom now. I posted one of these for ID several years ago, and I have posted this many times. Douglas wrote a blog article about it: July 2016 in the Garden - UBC Botanical Garden. OK, into the garden now. Even I can't miss seeing these Inula racemosa 'Sonnenspeer' - they are very near the garden entrance. These are not so easy to photograph, as most of the flowers are above my height. Fortunately, there was one that had fallen over. Not far from these, but on the south side of Upper Asian Way, is a large planting of Strobilanthes attenuata. I like the row of hairs on the leaf midrib in the last photo. I think the Strobilanthes have done in the 'Mutabilis' rose, which I saw last month but did not seem to be in evidence today. Down the path from the Strobilanthes is the best group of Anemone hupehensis.
