November Thanksgiving Landscape Flowers

27 Nov

If you are having guests over for the Thanksgiving holiday or wedding photographs taken at your home, make sure your landscape is bursting with color.

You will notice I have many favorite plants, but this tree really is one of them! The Autumn Cherry Tree. If a plant blooms more than one season, it is a favorite. Autumn Cherry Trees bloom in spring and in October/November.


Some annuals with a very long bloom time. This double petunia is fantastic.

My white blooms on the begonias are still strong. Perfect for wedding photographs.

Salvia, Rhea is really a show stopper! This annual is also called Mealycup Sage.

Yellow marigolds are hanging in there.

Below is a hanging pot filled with the annual, verbena.

Another hanging pot annual.

This is an amazing perennial/annual vine. Yes, it is invasive and I love it.

The black-eyed susan vine is behind the potato vine. Removing it is quite easy too.

A few perennials, like this yellow canna lily ready to give us one last bloom.

Perennial geranium below has been sporadically blooming the entire growing season.

Hardy garden mums are just about finished blooming.

“Baths Pink” Dianthus has a few flowers left. I did shear these perennials after their showy display in spring.

This perennial verbena blooms from April to Frost and is only available at Gethsemane GArdens. Janice has named this beauty, Barnyard Verbena.

Shrubs with autumn blooms like Camellia sassanqua. This will bloom for several more weeks.

Knock out roses are another favorite of mine.

There will be another round of blooms before they go dormant.

Gardenia shrubs have a few flowers.

Red knock out roses.

“Little Gem” Magnolia trees with flower buds, fragrant too.

Have a wonderful holiday and think about incorporating some of the autumn blooming plants within your landscapes in early spring.

Happy Planting!
