Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the past month has been a fairly mild mid-autumn. My garden is slowing down, but we haven't had a hard freeze yet. That means I have lots of annuals still. Some of them are even thriving and reviving in this cooler period. In particular, the fuchsia in my hanging pots on my gazebo (pictured here) is coming back strong and is looking stunning in the autumn light.
Other annuals still looking good include bacopa, impatiens, torenia, violas, snapdragons, and salvia.
