Well it’s Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day and the flowering for October is fairly predictable. Toad lilies, Japanese Anemone’s, annuals in the garden and the Oxalis are all coming into flower in the greenhouse. They get planted in late August and they come into flower very rapidly. And one of the earliest and most prolific is Oxalis hirta ‘Gothenburg’
Some other Oxalis examples are
Out in the yard a new Colchicum that we’ve added is ‘Dick Trotter’
For the first time we’ve got flowers on the new Mahonia that we added this spring.
I’ve got high hopes that this soft foliaged Mahonia will make it over the winter.
Also in the monument bed is a lovely little Saxifrage that I received as a gift this winter.
Also a single flower shows on the St. John’s Wort this week.
As I mentioned the toad lilies continue to put on a show. Especially productive is the Tricyrtis ‘Sinonome’
These are some of the highlights in our garden. I hope yours is also filled with delights.
