Pineapple sage is another hummingbird favorite that is a late bloomer. I grow it against a South facing wall because it's not hardy here. That gives me the latest blooms possible.
Here too. I've had it go on blooming in pots in a protected spot until the end of December in mild years. Then I bring it into the garage to wait for spring when I can divide it or take cuttings. There are more showy plants but none so long standing as this plain salvia.
The cuphea Vermillionaire is another one that goes on til the end and ends up in the garage, dormant til spring. I have kept one growing under a light out there and it was a large plant 1st thing the next year but now I need the space for........Tomato plants!

Default More blooming today

A perennial hibiscus that is my neighbor's plant, but is growing over our fence. He has three plants and they are huge and covered with buds. Next are canna, and lastly ruellia (wild petunias), which reseeds and grows like weeds everywhere.

This morning I repotted three grocery store miniature roses, each of which had four individual plants in their tiny pots. I separated the individual plants and repotted to larger containers. Now I hope for the best....they weren't looking too good.

Default Hibiscus still producing

This potted hibiscus is still putting on blooms. It was on the front porch but I moved it because there wasn't room for the Halloween decorations.

While cleaning out my gardens for winter here in northern Michigan today, November 3, I found all these flowers to make me smile. Trycytis, Flowering Kale, and Nearly Wild Rose

And there were more. The first is geranium sanquinium, my all time favorite perennial. Also butterfly bush with rudbeckia "Little Susie" in the background.

Love the Tricyrtis. I must look into that one for myself.
