Apparently neither wind nor rain nor snow nor hail will stop it...

I have one sasanqua that's been in full bloom since August and shows no signs of stopping.
Even with the rain and cooler temps, my garden is still in a state of confusion. I've got crocosmia, larkspur, lychnis, and a few other things blooming to beat the band...which should dormant right now. Guess they never got the memo....

My Adenium obesum in bloom indoors, actually since December, and still holding. Just a bit frustrating when light is weak like today with the rains. But still busy making buds while dormant:

I put mine in the orchid shack and let it go dry. All the new buds dried up, but it still has some leaves. I gave it a little water when I watered the orchids a few days ago.
