Yikers, only one more Bloomday left after this...what a year it's been. Quite a few of my plants decided to try my patience and wait until November to bloom, like this Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi' which has finally opened it's first two flowers...
Abutilon megapotamicum 'Red'...
...and Abutilon Nuabyell however have been blooming for months and months!
Correa backhousea, notice tiny little buds to the right of the flower, there will be more from this one.
Eriobotrya japonica flowers keep opening up - much to the delight of the pollinators. No signs of fruit forming yet.
Acanthus sennii is another one of those time-pushers. It's getting closer...
A late Canna flower...
And an early Ceanothus 'Dark Star'.
Clematis tibetana var. vernayi, okay it's no longer a bloom...but it's cool!
I tried to capture the creatures buzzing around the Fatsia japonica blooms, but this is the best I could do. There's a huge incoming on the far left, a small one above him and two others to his right. Then in the upper third of dead center is a fifth, sort of in focus.
Fatsia polycarpa is fixing to bloom, for the first time.
Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream', in the shade pavilion greenhouse.
A Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream' bud...
Grevillea victoriae 'Murray Queen' in it's floral stage.
Mahonia x media 'Charity'
This plant is on the north side of our house, next to the neighbors driveway. In other words a very out-of-the-way location. I can only assume there are hummingbirds visiting regularly. Those aren't the typical tubular shaped flowers they adore, but I see them going after the Fatsia japonica blooms so it's possible.
Metapanax delavayi, kind of obvious it's related to the Fatsia isn't it?
Passiflora 'Sunburst' started blooming last month and has had multiple flowers open every day since. This one is only hardy to USDA Zone 10, so I suppose I should start making plans to dig it up, like I did last year.
Passiflora jamesonii 'Coral Seas' wanted to open in time for Bloomday, and it's almost there!
Persicaria 'Brushstrokes', tiny. Impossible to photograph.
Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon', a little bit easier.
Rosemary, never a good photo of this one.
Salvia discolor wants to bloom...but this is all I'm getting. What a disappointment this year.
The Tetrapanax papyrifer are also giving it there all, maybe, just maybe (no frost in the forecast, but this time of year there are no guarantees).
And this silly thing! Now that the Stapelia is inside it seems to be on a Bloomday blooming schedule, for two months running at least.
