Here we are in the first week of November, with several days of 60s and 70s ahead, and my poor Minnesota garden does not know what to do. We’ve only had a couple of freezes so far, and several plants just keep on blooming.
What’s blooming in November? These guys.
Gomphrena is another persistent annual.
This rose bred by Minnesotan David Zlesak is called Oso Happy Smoothie, but I think they should call it “relentless.” It blooms late every year.
Calendula is another self-seeding annual that I keep around for their long bloom.
Clara Curtis daisies are a prolific self-seeder, but I enjoy the bloom late in the season. Be sure to cut back early in the year to keep them from blooming too early.
Pineapple sage is a very late annual in Minnesota. Too bad the hummingbirds are gone, because they love this plant.
I almost did not include this calibarchoa image, because it’s a little faded, But you’ve got to admire them continuing to bloom.
