The Undead Garden...Plant Zombies

October in Minnesota...30 degrees F.

The cold air has moved in, and most garden plants have succumbed to the Dementors. The weatherman has declared that gardening season is 'Over'.
I love this time of year in the garden...There are some things which survive a bit longer in the cold fall...plants which provide fall interest. The following zombie plants are refusing to die in my garden, and have something to offer for fall: Hardy Shrub Roses, Grasses, Hydrangea, Crabapple, Aster, Kale, Bachelor's Buttons, Sumac, Sedum.

Just be careful in the late fall garden...don't let your guard down. Zombies are out there...They don't feel the cold, and they're hungry for brains.
