Looking across the back yard from the gate we see Salvia madrensis and violet ruellia. The wheel garden highlighted yesterday is in the background.
Salvia madrensis is a shade plant which produces bright yellow blooms in the fall.
I pair it with the violet blooms of ruellia which were set back by our one cold night early in November.
In the same bed along the house, Brugmansia 'Dr Seuss' had a flush of two dozen blooms at once.
In yesterday's post I highlighted two types of Gomphrena in the wheel garden. There are more around the yard like these tiny native Gomphrena 'Little Grapes'.
Purple Gomphrena in a galvanized planter along the fence is blooming beautifully today.
Over by the garage, the Bat-faced cuphea managed a few blooms before the deer ate them. They will be relocated behind the fence in the spring.
Salvia "Indigo Spires' loves the cooler weather
Along the creek, Cow's Tongue Opuntia is combining with the monster Lantana camara
Rusellia is a reliable bloomer most of the year
The Meyer Lemon bloomed even with a lemon ripening, these blooms all dropped off.
Out in the front yard our native Gulf muhly bloomed for the first time. I've moved these three times in the last two years and have finally found a spot that works.
Agave Ovatifolia isn't exactly a bloom but it's shaped like one so it counts.
That concludes the tour of Autumn blooms in my garden. Thanks for reading this far!
