"During the month of November, Lan Su Chinese Garden will be packed with more than 750 potted chrysanthemums artistically displayed throughout the garden. More than 75 different chrysanthemum varieties will unfurl in all colors, shapes and sizes including: spiders, quills, spoons, regular incurves, irregular incurves, reflexes, semi-doubles, anemones, brush, thistle, exotics and more! Take in the oranges, reds and yellows of autumn to unusually bright pinks, pale lavenders, lime green, and even stripes of the chrysanthemum." (source)
It's not a mum, but the Loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) was in full bloom and smelled divine.
The pollinators were all over it, but it looks like I didn't manage to get a single one in my photos.
The tree is good-looking too.
I have no idea what this bloom belongs to.
Mumvember runs the entire month, check it out if you're in Portland. And if you're a Lan Su Garden member here's a reminder that you've got reciprocal membership at Portland's Japanese Garden for the entire month of November, so visit there too!
