There are still a few annuals braving the chill – the one above, Calendula ‘Touch of Red Buff’ and below Nicotiana mutablis,
Antirrhinums include sumptuous ‘Black Prince’
and (in my view) insipid ‘The Rose’
As well as the pink flower carpet roses there is also this one, ‘Berkshire’ which is a very similar colour but has a more single form.
There are still Pelargoniums flowering well, this one is the ‘Boot Fair’ one
and this one, ‘Pink Capitatum’, the only one so far brought into the greenhouse.
There are at least a couple of Salvias (‘Dyson’s Scarlet’ and ‘Cerro Potosi’) covered in more blooms now than earlier in the year.
On the pergola the first few Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens ‘Freckles’ are flowering, but they are terribly tangled up with the roses and I’m a bit concerned both are suffering from the relationship!
In the greenhouse the loud Mandevilla Sundaville Pink is still pumping out its exotic blooms, but other exotics are still flowering (incongruously) outside.
and still the Nerines.
And to finish, not exotic, but what a good doer – Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’.
