|Rosa 'Strike it Rich' AARS 2006|
I have Coral 'Showboat' Storybook Roses blooming continuously since last March with healthy green leaves sans black spot.
My Toad Lily Trycirtus has popped up way too soon also.
A Rudbeckia triloba I got as a tiny plug this past Spring is still in bloom, although I expected it to stop in October or November.
Perhaps the oddest of all is the Fern Leaf Lavender that I started from seed last Spring. It started to bloom in September or October and hasn't stopped.
Salad Burnet is not in bloom but is full and beautiful, while the foxgloves behind it are throwing up flower spikes - reaching about 18 inches so far.
Other flowers are expected to be in bloom this time of year, such as Camellia japonica Debutante,
Camellia 'High Fragrance, '
Camellia 'Magnolilaflora' looks like a lady's hat to me
Camellia sasanqua Setsugekka.
Likewise 'Jacob' is another of the new hybrid Hellebores that is in bloom.
Daphne odora is beginning to open .
I am tickled to see, after more than a decade and planting in three different gardens trying to get this one to bloom, that my Algerian Iris, Iris unguicularis, is finally planted in just the right spot and is blooming in January.
My little 'Rosebud' Japanese Flowering Apricot Prunus mume is blooming on old wood and I'm delighted I found it at Garden*Hood Nursery last January.
There are lots more, but you get the drift! What is blooming in your garden now?
