what's blooming in November?

cheerpeopleNovember 6, 2005

i want to add more fall interest plants next year.

I counted 17 types of plants with a few blooms - here in zone 5 on Nov 5th! I can't believe it.

I'm not counting grasses or 'no color blooms' like art. 'silver mound"

I think the frosts actually intensify the color of salvia 'victoria' blue.

What's bloomin for you?There has to be a few more flowering plants I should know about and add for fall color.

Thx karen

Look for shrubs too. The stems on Cornus alba 'Sibirica' & Salix alba vitellina 'Britzensis' are getting very red. So are berries on Viburnum. My dwarf conifers are coming into view now after I have cleaned up some of the perennials.

Not too much here since the frost :(. I have old-fashioned mums (don't have the name handy, but they are large daisy-like flowers) and they are blooming their heads off. Roses are still blooming, and I've got a rouge monarda here and there with a few petals left. Asters -- they're still going. I have a phlox with some petals still hanging on. Butterfly bush is still putting out a few bloom spikes. Some black-eyed susans. The pinapple sage is hanging on but just barely. The iceplants are still putting out some blooms.

Oh, and scabiosa. Blooming like it never got cold!!

I'm just waiting on my reblooming irises. No flower spikes yet but they tend to give out their fall flower way late in the year.

I see blooming veronicas (speedwell) everywhere but not mine :(. I guess it's because I forgot to deadhead!

The maple was a gorgeous electric yellow but after the heavy wind yesterday, it's all on the ground!

This is good!
I'm starting a list by cutting and pasting the ones you mentioned.
it is 11-9 today and I haven't been out there in daylight for a few days but this is what i saw with at least one bloom on the weekend.
I think starting these from seed has pushed back their bloom time on many of these- seed grown indicated---

HH 'peaches and Dreams' (seed grown this year)
heliopsis 'prairie sunset- from seed this year and NOT growing true
heliopsis 'Lorraine sunshine" - plant purchase this year
asarima annual vine seed grown this year
salvia' victoria"(seed this year)
salvia 'may night- plant
salvia 'transylvanica' seed this year
wood poppy - chelidonium majus 'double greater celandine 'flore plena' papaver(self sowed this year_

creeping babies breath gypsophilia repens (plant)
mums (plant)
anthemis 'kelwayi' self sowed from seed this year
'chocolate' eupatorium (purchased plant this year)
catananche - cupid's dart plant
larkspur (seed)
delphinium (seed grown and plant grown)
malva (plant)
gaillardia "mandarin?" and 'goblin' (seed and plant grown this year)
campanula ( just got in trade)
allium 'ozawas'
linaria- self sowed this year.

Any one else?

I think every blossom is frozen now. The temperature dropped to the teens two nights in a row. I need to dig up my Dahlias PDQ and bury any potted plants I have.

It's gorgeous out there, but I'm stuck at work and can't get home until after dark. :-(

Nothing is blooming any longer. The first part of November is still nice. But within a few weeks, it all curls up and dies.

The Heath 'Erica' is covered with buds and ready to bloom. This is my first season with it in the garden. I didn't believe that it really would bloom in the winter, but I'm a believer now!

I couldn't believe my eyes yesterday. =^..^=
It is so cold I was having trouble pushing plant tags in the frozen ground... and I noticed my brunifolia draba had a new bloom! On Nov 26th!
It's a little confused- normally it starts blooming in March.

A lot of plants are still hanging on to their leaves because of the sudden arrival of freezing temp. It looks kinda weird to see your roses and such full of dry green leaves in the snow. An unexpected sight for December.
