sparse blooms in november

pineapple sage

Pineapple sage is one of the very few flowers just coming on at this late date.

tropaeolum

The nasturtiums went through a ratty phase, but seem to be reenergized by the cold and damp (unlike most of the gardeners I know).

hydrangea quercifolia

The oakleaf hydrangea is slow to turn color this year, and has sent forth a few late season blossoms that are flat, unlike the conical trusses of summer.

Callicarpa bodinieri ‘Profusion’

Once all its leaves have fallen, the Callicarpa’s berries earn the common name: beautyberry. Other than a few Verbena bonariensis and some dahlias, that’s about it for flower power in my garden this month, but visit May Dreams Gardens to find links to other parts of the world where the show still goes on.
