Verbena has not stopped blooming yet, not as pretty, but hanging on just the same.
What the heck? I have grown Gerbera Daisies in the ground before and they die back in the winter and come back in the spring. These two plants I grew in pots this last spring/summer and they get bit by the frost and continue to bloom. The pink one is loaded underneath. I know they look tired, I just keep admiring their determination.
The old stand by for guaranteed color all through the winter. I have Pansies sprinkled all over the place, here are just two photos of them.
There is a small Oak Tree in my largest flower garden and I planted, Larkspur, Lupine and Foxglove around it, apparently they like the mild winter here. Have never tried these before, when the temp drops below freezing I do cover them with a sheet. I also noticed a ton of Wishbone coming up around this tree as well. I have a dried hanging basket of them in this tree and they are heavy reseeders.
Lupine (had Foxglove listed here earlier, Jean corrected me, thank you)
Here are the seeds that I started indoors a few weeks ago. The two tall plants are Red Firespike that I rooted before the freezing temps came.
