Late bloomers

November is here and there are still some special sights to see in the gardens if you take your time and look past the waning deciduous foliage. 
In the shade, you'll see two purple-speckled varieties of Tricyrtis, aka Toad Lilies. Look behind the benches nearest McCallum Street and near the big tree trunk at the central terrace.
In the sun, you'll find:
Peach Drift shrub roses
airy pink seedheads of Muhlenbergia capillaris, aka Pink Muhly Grass
subtle blue flowers on a chartreuse-leafed Caryopteris shrub 
Chrysanthemum 'Rhumba'
