November alpines!

St. John's, NL(Zone 5b)

We have yet to have a killing frost in St. John's, Newfoundland. Our extended fall has caused a few alpine (or alpinish) plants to put forth a bloom or two. The Campanula glomerata is blooming again....albeit a poor display, but a bloom is a bloom.

Rhododendron ferrugineum is really confused.

Androsace chaixii..this one behaves as an annual or biennial. I was hoping for the latter so it could set seed but now I will likely loose it.

Allium thunbergii just keeps going and going.

Very nice photos Todd! You're lucky to still have so much in bloom at this time of year. I love the rhododendron ferrugineum - must be a real treat to have that in flower now!
