I was lurking looking for tips on how to prepare my plants for the winter. My goal is to not lose any this winter, but only time will tell.
I was contemplating when I should cut off the leaves and move them under the covered patio but so far I still have some plants blooming... so I guess I will wait another week or so. The question I have is for those late inflos do I cut them off or leave them?
Saigon Moon... looking more white/yellow now due to cooler temps.
Divine still blooming on all 3 tips. Again colors are less intense. But still so pretty.
Elsie still blooming on both tips while pushing a brand new inflo on a third!
Lani is looking much better! Glad I didn't toss her... she's beginning to look like the real deal. :) But even if she's not, she's turning into a real beauty!
Delightful also still blooming on 4 tips... What a beauty.
Orange Jack. What a big surprise. Still blooming its head off.
Orange Jack deserves a closer look.
Cherokee Geisha. Need I say more?
Whirlwind got a late start so I don't think she's blooming to her true potential. Still very pretty nevertheless.
Kimi M... I almost gave her away at the beginning of the season because I was not that impressed with her last year. Boy did she prove me wrong! What a stunner!
Star of Siam kind of reminds me of Raspberry Sundae.
My Valentine. Huge flowers and awesome scent.
TC from George's friend. Gorgeous!
Hula Girl. Glad I didn't give up on her! She sat next to the trash bin all summer before deciding to grace me with her beauty. Oh and I did I say she smells heavenly?
Hula Girl inflo # 1. Cut or keep?
Hula Girl inflo #2. Cut or keep?
Thailand Red still going strong.
Thailand Red a closer look.
Charlotte Ebert also pushing 3 inflos! This is just one of them. Cut or keep?
My biggest surprise of them all... my Viola G is pushing a new inflo! Now what??? I really want to see what she looks like but I know the weather is turning colder especially at night going down to the mid 50s.
Any suggestions on how to get her to bloom? Thank you for looking!
