Late Fall Bloomers in North Texas

Stepped outside to capture some shots of flowers and hopefully butterflies on my Copper Canyon Daisies, but I didn’t spy any! I did find lots of bees and other insects enjoying the Mistflowers. We had an early freeze this week, but it wasn’t long enough to damage these flowers! Turks Cap is also still in bloom. An extra special treat was discovering 2 yellow roses. One in bloom and the other still a rosebud.

Mistflower and Pentas Blooming in My Garden In Early November

We still have not had a hard freeze, so it still looks like late summer in our backyard!  Since winter is coming, I will be sharing some photos taken during the summer and fall. First shown are the delicate mistflowers and second are the pentas. Both are great nectar plants for butterflies and bees and other nectar loving insects!
