Garden Blogger Bloom Day November 2010

The weather has cooled and it is decidedly fall. Day time temperatures stay in the 70s or less and one night actually dipped just below 40 to all of 39. The begonia richmondensis and 4 other new tender begonias have been brought inside to continue blooming there for the time being. Many plants are actually happier and blooming better now...Rosa Flower Girl, for one, blooms almost all year but is prettiest in my opinion when the weather is cooler. Colors that bleach out in the heat of summer stay fresh and crisp when we reach fall.
Above, Rosa Berries and Cream is just about to open...a day or two late for Garden Blogger Bloom Day.
Scabiosa Butterfly Blue is starting a new round of blooms as well.

Other blooms this 15th day of November, 2010 include:

Wax begonias

Lavandula pinnata buchii
Salvia greggii
Bat-faced cuphea
Dwarf Salvia Indigo Spires
Salvia Dancing Dolls
Rosa Flawless
Solanum jasminoides
Plumbago auriculata
Camellia Sasanqua Kanjiro

Wow, you can grow Foxgloves & they're still blooming? Hmmmppph. Love the Lobelia and Alyssum together. Maybe I'll run by the grower and grab a flat of each. I know just the spot for them!

I hope to get a greenhouse soon, that will be a learning experience! But I really want to grow tomatoes and basil as long as possible in Utah!

Between you and Annie in Austin... November is turning out to be Camellia Envy Month for me! LOVE those dark blooms and beautiful foliage. :)

I'm with Kim, suffering from Camellia envy. That's such a beautiful flower.

What an amazing array of blooms. I'm going to have to schedule a visit with our Sacremento friends in November. Clearly, this is still a good time for garden visiting.
