November Blooms!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

My late bloomers have started blooming. What's blooming in your garden?

Copper Canyon Daisy

Mexican Mint Marigold--this was a volunteer from about 3 years ago! LOL

Eastern Mistflower--this one blooms in the fall.

Red Shrimp Plant

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Very nice Stephanie, that mint marigold really smells good.

Esperanza blooming so heavy it is breaking stems.
Duranta still blooming.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Very Lovely, Joy!!! I love both of those.

(Joy) Hempstead, TX(Zone 8b)

Thanks Josephine, they are some of my favorites. I bought a lime green duranta and one of the new orange Esperanza plants this spring and I can't wait tiLl next year when they will add to the show. I am already thrilled the the foliage on the duranta, it is a lovely counterpoint to my dark green asparagus .
My green zinnias continue to rock along, although they don't want to stand up but prefer to sprawl. And the purple porter weed is covered with butterflies, another outstanding plant that has never stopped blooming since I planted it this spring.

I wish the porter weed was a native, the butterflies do love it.

Austin, TX

Bluebonnets, although the flowers are really leaves.

Are pic #3 and pic #5 in your last set of pictures the same? Is that Texas Tarragon (aka Mexican Mint Marigold)?

Litchfield Park, AZ

Wow, so many gorgeous flowers. The Clematis are my favorite. Are they hard to grow there? And wow, Daffodils blloming in November? I thought mine bloomed early. Thanks for the pictures. Made my day.

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

stephanietx
yes you are correct. Texas Tarragon.

Valsflowers
Clematis grow really good in my area.
Yes Daffodils in November. It is a variety called Grand Soleil (or something like that). I had them for years. They bloom November and December and I use them as cut flowers.
Their fragrance in the house is amazing.

I also forgot to take pictures of my Turks Cup. They are making seed pods and I love to eat them.
You can see the red pods in this picture below.

Turks Cup and its seed pod (which I eat ... so sweet)
My Morning Glory is changing color with the cooler temperature. The flower is not more a blue purple and it has also fucsia pink stripes

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

So many beautiful roses at this time of the year

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

Other perennials in bloom

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

Bearded Iris
Daffodil
Hibiscus
Cone Flower
and Zinnias still blooming

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

Milkweed for the Monarch butterflies.
In the last two pictures you can see the seed pods exploded and they are seeds hanging ...
Every year I let my Milkweed to reseed itself. In my garden is not invasive because the butterfly find the plants to feed their caterpillars.
It is a win win.

It has been a fantastic rose in my garden.

That reddish orange/salmon colored one? With a name like that, I'd expect browns.

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

Actually sometimes is a very dark red

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

drthor - wow, your garden is alive with color! So beautiful!
