September, a month when the heat of summer gives way to the coolness of fall, is represented by exhuberantly blooming flowers to match the change of attitude that comes with the change in the weather. Morning Glories that can cover buildings with a lush canopy of clear blue; Mallow enrobed in sparkling star-shaped flowers; Chrysanthemun, whose flowers can cover a bush so completely that almost no leaves can be seen - talk about exhuberant!
