Déjà Vu -- a Reblooming Bloom Day

Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the past month has been a fairly typical early autumn. My garden is humming along. For this month's bloom day, I thought I'd share a few of the plants that I am trialing that are reblooming now. These are all bred to have flowers outside our usual bloom times.

I have a Bloomerang Dwarf Purple Lilac blooming now, along with several reblooming Weigela, Hydrangea, and Azalea varieties. Pictured below is an azalea I was recently sent to trial. It arrived several pruned back and took a few weeks to recover. It is now covered in flowers and looking quite spectacular.

  1. That is a particularly pretty azalea. When I moved in there were several in containers in the yard, and I loved them. Then, one hard winter and they were gone. I didn't bother to replace them. My mother always had lots of them, and I do miss them.

    1. Thanks, Lisa. I hope you do try to grow azaleas again - they are breeding them now to be hardier to colder zones, so you might checkout one of the newer introductions.

  2. They're really beautiful but I wonder if they really do bloom for a good part of the season. Traditional azalea blooming is such a flash in the pan.
