Garden Blogger Bloom Day November 2009

November 15, 2009

There’s still fall foliage color in the garden to accompany the straggling bloomers.

Cerinthe - A Self-Seeding Cool Season Annual Blooming in November

Cerinthe - A Self-Seeding Cool Season Annual Blooming in November

Soon winter bloomers like Witch Hazel and Sasanqua Camellias will be showing their stuff. In November, I thoroughly enjoy the many berries brightening on Cotoneasters, Sarcococcca, a neighbor’s Mountain Ash, and our Arbutus unedo. Flowers are at a minimum. Still, I invite you to enjoy with me a few of the sturdiest still blooming through downpours, heavy hail and a few November breezes.

The Cerinthe featured here is a lovely cool season annual that appears in my garden year after year — in Spring and in Fall. Years ago, when I was studying horticulture I brought home one plant that is parent to the many that have shown up in our garden. Each season I watch for the tiny grey-green-purplish seedlings, carefully lifting them from their random locations to create masses of succulent color just where I want it.More November Bloomers:
