Flower Wednesday linkup 18

This Chelone obliqua is my favourite autumn bloomer. 
Pretty pink, modest to grow and not spread too eagerly. About 100 cm tall.
Blooming lasts for several weeks, about to finish these days.

Linkki on auki - Tervetuloa!
The link is open - Welcome!

Linkup 1 & the rules.

Lämmin kiitos kaikille osallistujille!
My warm thanks to all for your contributions!

  1. Never heard of Chelone obliqua and in my ignorance thought it was a Snapdragon.
    Lovely showing and I particularly like the shape of the mosaic :-)
    Hope your home is getting to be spic 'n span.

    1. This is a great plant. Blooms late and for a long time, stays upright in rain and wind and the leaves are good looking throughout the season. I have two tiny white ones as well! Hope they bloom better next year.
      I'll forget the garden totally in a few days. It's about time!!!!

  2. This stunning flower in Northern Italy blooms all Summer long, I so love it, thank you for sharing this wonder in this so gorgeous shade of lilac with us, dearest Riitta !

    So very grateful to you for hosting me today,
    I'm sending hugs and ever much love to you


    Xx Dany

    1. You are so lucky with this plant Daniela, having it in bloom the whole summer ❤︎! Here it blooms from September on.

  3. Beautiful images of the Chelone obliqua, they are growing and flowering like weeds here in my garden.

    1. Another lucky lady! :)) As I mentioned above, I wish my tiny white ones grow bigger next year!
