(Today is Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, hosted by Carol from May Dreams Gardens. Please visit her blog to see what's in bloom in November gardens from around the world.)
The landscape trees are providing most of the color in my yard this month. The backyard Tulip Poplars (Liriodendron tulipifera) are wearing their brilliant fall foliage. Of course foliage isn't flowers, so here is what's blooming in my zone 9b garden:
A few of the summer flowers are lingering on.
|New Guinea Impatiens|
Apparently the the small amount of rain was enough to encourage the Clematis 'Madame Julia Correvon' to bloom one more time.

|The Angel's Trumpet Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi' finally has bloomed.|
|'Mexican Petunia' Ruellia brittoniana|
|A few miniature roses|
I had been anticipating having blooms on my Tree Dahlia (Dahlia Imperialis) by November. I wrote about it here and here, but it has yet to bloom. I will surround it with more mulch and cover it when frost is predicted. Perhaps next year will be the year!
