Bloom Day November

Last night’s freeze was about an hour of cold just enough to make tender leaves twist and blacken. Some protected areas still boast blooms.

Brugmansias on the south side of the house still have blooms. Those on the other side of the driveway have dropped all color.

Salvia leucantha under pines frames a dry Hydrangea bloom.
Scattered rose blooms persist.
Gulf Muhly is not as spectacular as it was a week ago. Lantana montevidensis will persist until a really hard freeze. Melampodium protected by Duranta above it, also still blooming,  Melampodium in the open ground is blackened.

  1. Looks like you still have lovely weather !

  2. Oh boy, that Sasanqua looks good enough to eat! So pretty! And, isn’t it interesting to see how big of a role microclimates play, now that it gets down to the wire? Plants growing on the lee side of my house fared so much better than the poor souls on the other side, when the icy east wind whipped through for days on end. It makes such a huge difference!

  3. Jean,we have not gotten any frost yet, think it is because we are in coastal GA. My hibiscus are still blooming as well as my Philippine vilolets are blooming, it generally blooms in Oct.
