Okay, correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it October 1st just a few days ago? It’s hard to believe that November is already here. You know what that means – Christmas is just around the corner.
Last month was a busy one in the garden. While there are not as many tasks to be done in November, there are still a few things to do.
|Globe Mallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua)|
Continue planting cold-tolerant trees, shrubs, and perennials. These include Angelita Daisy (Tetraneuris acaulis), Blue Bells (Eremophila hygrophana), Globe Mallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua), Pink Fairy Duster (Calliandra eriophylla), and Valentine Bush (Eremophila maculata). All of these plants do well in full sun.

|Mexican Honeysuckle (Justicia mexicana)|
|Snapdragon Penstemon (Penstemon palmeri)|
|‘Regal Mist’ (Muhlenbergia capillaris ‘Regal Mist’)|
|‘Regal Mist’ in winter.|
