November Bloom Day

We had our first frost last week. The pickins are slim out there these days, yet we can still find a few blooms in the garden.

The mini-rose has been known to bloom in December, even in the snow. This might be the last flower of the season though, since there are no more buds.

Geranium 'Rozanne' blooms from late May or early June until frost. She's looking a bit bedraggled, but I'll say she deserves a shoutout for making it to mid-November.

Bunnies like heuchera blooms this time of year. This nice, fresh bloom scape on a small division of 'Autumn Bride' heuchera has eluded them so far.

'Blue Hill' salvias have been churning out blooms all summer. No busy bees hanging around here anymore as they did in warmer days.

The only mum left with blooms. All the rest have succumbed to the bunnies. I like how Heuchera villosa 'Mocha's bloom scape is mingling with the mums.

The tall bellflowers have been blooming since May.

A native Great Blue lobelia seedling still has a couple of blooms left.

A few native asters remain, and the hardy cyclamen in the header photo is still blooming too. There's a beautiful cimicifuga (I prefer the old name) here that blooms in November, but our hot, dry summer melted the buds. Oh well, maybe next year!

Happy November Bloom Day! To see more Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day posts, please visit our host, Carol at May Dreams Gardens.


  1. Isn't is amazing the plants that continue to bloom! I still have a coneflower that keeps going.


  2. It's good to see there are still some blooms in your garden, too, Linda. I think this time of year we appreciate them even more. I was surprised when I was taking photos for Bloom Day to find a lone bloom on my daisy--back in September I would definitely have taken it for granted.

  3. You have lovely Bloom Day blossoms. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  4. We had our first frost, too. Life in the garden goes on, but with new stars.

  5. aloha,

    beautiful colors in your garden, thanks for sharing

  6. I know what you mean...even without frost here, we are grateful for whatever is still blooming. Isn't 'Rozanne' the best...gotta love a plant so determined to keep blooming!

  7. Those cyclamens are really beautiful. And that's a wonderful pic. Excellent pic to go to your header :-D

  8. Hi Garden girl
    It's amazing what does still bloom at your part of the world. Well, okay, some Rozanne and Roses are blooming here too, but bell flowers and salvia... I can just say: wow! In my garden they bloom only a view weeks :o(. So I enjoy your pictures even more.
    Take care and have a great weekend.

  9. Even though blue rules in your garden, no reason to be sad since all are so lovely.

  10. I just relocated to Indiana from Washington state, where I was use to seeing roses still in bloom in December, it was a nice treat to have blooms in my yard here as we entered December as well :)
