Most of the Sheffield Hill Pink mums, known affectionately here as the Sheffies, written about here, look sodden and sad.
Some plants are hidden and protected, helping their blooms persist. Lantana camara ‘Miss Huff’ is said to be hardy here in USDA Zone 7a Southeast Tennessee. It has not proven to be true, but this might be the position to make it so.
The Cattleya orchid Pumpkin, Cattleya Slc. (Pumpkin Festival ‘Fong Yuen’ x Naomi Kerps ‘Fireball’) which was recently praised here, has four blooms this year, a new record.
Still blooming, still pink, the muhly grass, Muhlenbergia capillaris closes out the sharing of flowers for this November 2012. Be sure and check the rest of the Garden Bloggers Bloom Day posts over at good friend Carol of May Dreams Gardens to see what is blooming for November 2012 around the globe.
