Re: what's blooming?
Down here in the sunny southern portion of Indiana the Monkshoods are
still going strong. Three different species that ended up blooming at the
same time. Whenever they bloom they are most welcome.... one will probably
go well into mid to late November in bloom.
Asters still going strong, both the tartan aster and one of its hybrids
called Lavender Lake. Geranium Rozanne if in full bloom.. has been since
May. Obedient plant is about to finish up for the year. Anemones for fall
have just a few scattered blooms remaining. May be gone by this weekend.
Toadlilies are completed now, many have good seed set for the first time in
years. Still have a few Gentiana in bloom, but less this year than in the
past. Summer was just too hot and dry too long. Forced things into earlier
Hardy cyclamen are in full bloom as yet and now the foliage is joining
the bloom. I have some nice Christmas Tree pattern foliage on the ivy leaf
cyclamen that sure is putting on a nice show. Cyclamen coum are perking
right along as well.
Hellebore are kicking into active growth now with new foliage coming up.
Bloomstalks are beginning on Hellebore foetidus.
Still well worth a walk in the garden... in between rain storms
