Hansa rose, liatris, and a cedar in the foreground:
Honeyberry bushes and ornamental grasses, planted last spring:
Browned grasses and leftover dill, and orange buds of highbush cranberry go nicely with my green, gold, and brick colour scheme for winter.

What with the late spring and crazy September weather, my beautiful bugbane (purple-leafed plant on the left, below) is probably not going to get a chance to bloom this year, but the spirea shrubs and adding some lovely orange colour.
Even the sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ is only just starting to bloom now:
I love its texture even when it’s not blooming though, and how it contrasts with the feathery grass beside it.
