I'm early! Is that better than being late? September 15th, this coming Sunday, is Garden Bloggers Bloomday. September, how is that even possible? The calendar marches on. Here's what's blooming in my garden mid September....
Poncirus trifoliata fruit, since it follows a bloom it kinda counts, right?
Rosemary NOID, with a little grey fellow I couldn't manage to get in focus.
Varbascum volunteer, almost done blooming.
I've never seen so many flowers on the Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Hindwarf'
I have no idea what it's reacting to, unless it's our early September rain.
Grevillea x gaudichaudii
Schizostylis coccinea or Hesperantha coccinea
The tall bloom spires of Schefflera delavayi, combined with the Nothopanax delavayi blooms, are a major attraction for the bees. They may not be much to look at, but they've got the right stuff for the pollinators.
I'm hoping the Clematis tibetana var. vernayi flowers open soon.
The Leonotis leonurus flowers are opening, to bad I didn't manage a non-blurry photo.
Passiflora 'Arctic Queen'
Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart'
Even a random NOID tillandsia bloom joined the party.
The bougainvillea bracts were all beaten off by the rain.
Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer'
Passiflora 'Amethyst Jewel' finishes up this month's floral show. Visit May Dreams Gardens for links to all those who are sharing floral bounty this month.
