I'm not brave enough to release Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' into the garden—rumors of her running rampant have scared me a bit. So, she lives in a container and I enjoy those blooms by the back door of the house.
Callistemon 'Woodlander's Hardy Red' put out this one random bloom earlier in the month, I'm not sure why, but it was kind of fabulous (they usually bloom in late June/July).
Both of my edgeworthia are already showing off buds of next year's flowers. I take comfort in the fact they're planning for the next growing season as I'm trying to come to terms with the end of this one (pictured is Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Akebono').
Loquat blooms are budding up too, these will open long before the edgeworthia... probably in time for November's Bloomday.
Since I'm sharing future flowers, Stachyurus salicifolius is looking to the future as well.
And it's getting quite tall!
The tiny flowers of Persicaria microcephala ‘Red Dragon’
Mahonia eurybracteata 'Soft Caress'
And with a visitor...
Out in the front garden now, Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Hindwarf'.
More buds! Mahonia x media 'Charity'.
I'm sure I've said it before, but when you're out looking for flowers it's remarkable how colorful foliage catches your eye. Here new fronds on Woodwardia unigemmata.
And Leucothoe fontanesiana 'Rainbow'.
More flowers from Cyclamen hederifolium 'Xera's Sterling'.
This NOID Bougainvillea has one of the most florific ever to grace my garden.
Of course I love that it's using an opuntia for support. Sadly with our cooling temperatures (a 37F low earlier in the week) it's probably going to be shutting down soon.
I had to work in a shot of the Poncirus trifoliata with its colorful fruit and foliage, as good as a flower in my book.
The (NOID) rosemary is blooming, but then again when isn't it? (not complaining, just noting)
And speaking of the rosemary, it looks like our seasonal visitors, Addam and Wednesday, have arrived and are currently parked in the plant.
They wish you an appropriately spooky couple of weeks leading up to Halloween.
And remind you to visit May Dreams Gardens if you're hunting for more spooky October Blooms...
