Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - November 2009

I apologize in advance for the ridiculous length of this post! I have a lot of flowers right now, though many of them are in rough shape.
Anyway, here's what's blooming in our yard/garden this November:
First, multiple camellias:

These flowers always fall from the shrub in-tact:

Pineapple sage is at its peak:

Mexican bush sage and aster are still blooming:
Pink double delight coneflower:
Lorapetalum blooming for the second or third time this year:
Black-eyed susan is raggedy, but still putting out small blooms:
Black and blue salvia, which mom gave me for my birthday in Sept.:
Butterfly weed, also a birthday gift from mom:
The mums are winding down:
This out-of-control four'o'clock was started two years ago from seed. These are perennial here. If you are seed-swappin' with Dirt Princess or otherwise just want some seeds from this, let me know! It smells great.

The bell peppers are still flowering and producing. I have seeds from these, too, if anyone wants:
I love the lavender flowers of early long purple eggplant. Also have some of these seeds if anyone wants:

Endless summer hydrangeas aren't producing new flowers anymore, but the old ones are still pretty:

Just a couple of zinnia flowers are holding on:

This miniature rose I grow in a pot blooms on and off from April through November:
Canna intends to bloom again before the first frost:
This hot pink, fragrant rose surprised me with a late-season bloom last week:
This iris is apparently confused about the season, as it has two buds:
Gallo peach blanketflower has some baby blooms aside seed heads:
Last but not least, my beans are looking rough, but I found one dainty bloom for you:
If you're still with me (ha), visit Carol at May Dreams Garden for more November blooms!

Nice to see that you have all these blooms still happening Ginger. Mine are all just shot, with the exception of some mums and pansies.

Drooling over your camellias! The deep pink cupped one and the white are fab! I planted two camellias today. Hope I didn't mess up one is 7 ft from a huge white oak.

I love those Camellias, seeing them blooming now makes me wish I had one. You do have a lot, and they all look great!

Heather said...

I can't believe you still have so many blooms. I am going to have to buy a poinsettia just to have some color!

Janet said...

Ginger, your Camellias are wonderful. You will have such great color for a good long time. I am surprised to hear your Four-o-clocks are fragrant...will have to check mine. They got so leggy that I moved them to the back of the garden. hmmmm???

Phillip said...

You have a lot blooming for November. I didn't have a chance to get out and photograph my blooms yesterday.

Jean said...

Ginger, I also love the lavender blooms of eggplant. In fact, I think I grow it more for that than the food (although I love it). Your hydrangeas look beautiful. Sometimes I like that look better than the summer look!

Dirt Princess said...

I want seeds from that coneflower!!!!! WOW!!! You do have lots blooming! I love the camellias! Amazing how plants get a little confused with the seasons! I can't wait to see that iris in bloom!
