I started 5 Agastaches from seed last year but most did not return, I hope this one, which grows on steroids, will do well next year. It's disappointing that a non-native did better.
A plant that comes up towards fall and spread by itself is Anemone japonica, this one is slightly bi-colored, more visible from the back-

Some of my most successful seed-grown plants are Achillea. Here is A. millefolium 'Colorado', now 2 years old and making a nice clump, I should have dead-headed so maybe I would be getting more rebloom now.
A few roses, mostly of the ground cover designation, are valiantly blooming, here is a spectacular red, Red Ribbons by Kordes. Faun, Sea Foam, Lavender Dream, and Baby Blanket are some more of my favorites in this category.

Happy Bloom Day! Hannah
