Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day for November 2020.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, we've enjoyed some warm November days and some cold November days. Today is one of the cold days.
But not so cold that I couldn't run out for a few minutes and take a couple of pictures.
First up are these little button mums which are still sort of blooming and definitely showing color. Is it the variety, the location, or my gardening skills that are causing them to sort of bloom with color long after other mums have faded?
We can rule out my skills. Location? Nothing really special about that. It must be the variety! I'll look for a tag... (My best guess is these are Dendranthema 'Dainty Pink Igloo'.)
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the garden, flower pickings are slim.
These tiny white autumn crocuses (Crocus speciosus) are always the last to bloom. You can sort of see a faded purple one behind it.
All the purple autumn crocuses have faded, but I gave them a lot of love in an earlier post, so they had their moment.
Out in front, a few leadwort (Ceratostigma plumbaginoides) blooms are hanging around.
Emphasis on "a few."
There is frost on the tall sedums.
