Agree with Fairy...never liked that hydrangea much and it has been due for the chop for couple of years but, wot's up?, I suddenly quite like it.  Will mulch it gemerously this autumn and see what it does for me next year 


the agastache is Heatwave Liri.  doesnt seed so flowers on and on


not so grand or showy but this sanguisorba is delightfully floaty, tactile and moves with slightest breeze.  Like a coloured grass

Dahlias

GD, I have noticed the Bishop and other dahlias with dark leaves ARE  less prone to snail, earwig, etc. attacks.   snails and slugs will decimate dahlias from stems to leaves so I would check on yours with a torch later 


sorry, can't help with ID but sure someone will 

Poor year for geranium cranesbill?

Silverlight, I think they dried out at the roots.


agree with hortico...cut back and water well. I would tickle in a mixture of ordinary mpc and pelleted chcken manure.


to rub salt into your wounds Silverlight mine have been superb......some just cut back and will flower again in 3 weeks or so.  No reason why yours don't do the same

Linda, is this newly planted?  


too many plants suffer because roots were too congested at planting time and rootballs not soaked.  Subsequent watering will never correct this
