In my garden November’s Bloomday seems to be much more about what has been and what will be than what is. I'm not complaining, just stating the facts. First we'll look at what has been. Chasmanthium latifolium...
Clematis tibetana var. vernayi
Disporum cantonese 'Night Heron'
Mahonia gracilipes, it's as colorful as a flower - don't you think?
And on to what is, is in bloom I mean. Abutilon hybrid 'Fairy Coral Red'
Callistemon ‘Clemson,’ going for a third round of blooms.
Grevillea victoriae 'Murray Queen'
Mahonia fortunei 'Curlyque'
Musella lasiocarpa, in it's final push to open all those yellow petals.
Rosemary (bad bad photo!)
Salvia discolor keeps pushing out the blooms. By the way these don't make great cut flowers, I tried.
Sedum 'Autumn Joy'
And what will be, weather permitting for some. Acanthus sennii
Arctostaphylos x ‘Austin Griffiths'
Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Nanjing Gold'
Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream'
Grevillea juniperina ‘Molonglo’
Mahonia x media 'Charity'
And finally, Tetrapanax papyrifer, this year I've got a couple of plants trying to bloom. This one is in the front garden and I've seen more than a couple people stop and stare. I love that!
So that's a wrap on my Bloomday experience. As always visit May Dreams Gardens for links to all the bloggers participating this month.
