Posted on November 2, 2015Blooming in November? 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.
