What's Blooming in November:  A Call for Photos from Warm Climate Gardeners

By LarryR
November 15, 2011

Here at Cottage-in-the-Meadow Gardens, our outdoor gardens are in their last-hurrah stage as frost creeps across the landscape. As you'll see, there are still a few hardy stragglers outdoors, but for the most part, our gardens have been put to bed for the coming winter. This time of year presents a perfect opportunity for gardeners in warmer climes to show us what's blooming in their gardens. Floridians, Californians, Aussies, Kiwis, gardeners anywhere in the Southern Hemisphere or the southern reaches of the Northern Hemisphere, show us your blossoms! I'll publish as many photos as time and space allow.

Thumb of 2011-11-15/tarev/5ceac9

Gaillardia 'Arizona Sun' is still sending out blooms, though the pace seems to take a lot longer compared to summertime:

Gaillardia 'Mesa Yellow' is also sending out blooms, again, pace is a lot slower too:

Wow, Gypsy and Tarev.
I'm going to move out your way.
I suddenly have not a single bloom in my yard, but in this rain today, I have the most glorious color.

Well, the heat is gone and we've had a couple of rains, so I'm quite content here. We do have glorious winters...I only complain in the summer....

I went out today and found Gaillardia 'Moxie' blooming its little heart out. The last blooms standing. The only blooms I could find but surprised to find this. We've already had a hard freeze or two so I was impressed. Most other things are but mush now. Sorry about the rather lousy shot ... it's raining a lot today.

Carol, I think that's a sprekelia. Take a look and see what you think:
