Surprise Fall BloomersPosted: December 18, 2018
This Fall I had some plants decide to bloom after many years of being flowerless. I’m not sure what could have caused this. Maybe it was the two hard freezes we had last winter. The Ligularia has been nothing but big green leaves for years. But, this year put out several stems of cheery yellow flowers.
The Pink Japanese Anemone, which is a butterfly favorite, has only put out a few sad flowers in the past. This Fall there was a record breaking 12 stems that have bloomed for weeks.
The most surprising is my Angel Trumpet. It is in its second blooming and started while temperatures were in the 30’s.
Will the flowers last and be Christmas Angels?
