Garden Bloggers bloom day is sponsored by Carol at May Dreams Gardens on the 15th of every month.
It’s easy to see how Christmas got its definitive red and green signature colors from this Nandina, or Heavenly Bamboo. It’s the last one in my yard – I’ve removed over 5 of them. Once my new plants have gained some height, this aggressive, non-native plant will be removed as well.
My Ivy Geranium still has a couple of purple blooms, surprisingly. It’s fun to see this time of year.
This Purple Heart has one bloom left.
The dwarf Pomegranite has a few small blooms left.
My favorite Bottlebrush seems to love this weather, even though it is a semi-tropical plant!
This cute little Shrimp plant was a new addition in the fall, and though the blooms are faded, it still provides a bit of color.
Again, another semi-tropical plant that hasn’t tucked tail and run in our unusually cold and windy December.
This bleeding heart vine is another fall addition to my yard. It has a few sweet purple blooms left. It appears that my yard is all purple and red!
And though it isn’t really a bloom, the Pyracanthea is still lush with berries. More green and red for the holidays!
The Plumbago, another semi-tropical that flourishes in Austin from spring to fall, has just one small bloom left.
What’s blooming in your garden in these snowy times?
