beautiful heleniums verdun-the very colors of autumn. do you have chrysanthemums with them? cimicifuga is one of the plants-box is another-whose odor for me is horrible. on the other hand about half the people who come in the garden in the spring think the crambe, which for me is odorless, smells like garbage. things that make you go hmmmm.
