I have a stokesia still in flower, and a white cosmos still struggling on, and a couple of dahlias still flowering.

 Cannas in pots and lifted Salvia patens still flowering in greenhouse.

Verdun, I think I have the last one too, leucanthingy...is it the tall white daisy?
02/11/2013 at 20:25

No mrs garden.

Its a lilac and white flowered salvia. ...just a variety of salvia.  For me its pretty hardy.  You are right though...leucanthemums are daisy plants.  I grow a particularly lovely variety called Broadway Lights ....not now in flower though.

02/11/2013 at 20:44

I have the broadway lights variety but it only flowered once this year. I dont think I cut the flowering stems down far enough after the first flush

02/11/2013 at 20:50

I have sedum, cosmos, ox-eye daisy and ammi visnaga still in flower but the garden is looking sorry for itself generally.

02/11/2013 at 20:54

I do have Coreposis, Penstemon, Chocolate Cosmos, Some Bedding Geraniums and Fuchsias, Japanese Anemones just finishing.

02/11/2013 at 22:06

There's a few that's still going, hard to believe as we are now into November. Cosmos are still great, snapdragons, clary sage, statice, rudebekias, penstemons, sweet rockets, evening primose, few feeble sweet williams and  the bowles mauve wallflowers

Long may the mild weather continue.

Matt if you see this I sent you a pm, don't think they are working properly, but I'm moving and can't take the garden with me

02/11/2013 at 23:15

Cosmos, a few dahlias,  one clematis which i can't remember name of. Catsear, scabious, zinnia and the winter pansies I planted last week. Not alot though. I need to find a few a few later flowering plants for next year. I'm a bit of a beginner realky regarding seasonal plants etc!

02/11/2013 at 23:36

Cosmos still going berserk, Polish spirit clematis, one of the Cobaeas has 3 newly opened flowers, Gentle Gardener rose trying hard with two or three flowers, couple of Gladiolus and half a dozen Peacock orchids or lilies, can never remember what they're called - must get some more of those though. (Perhaps you should have a look at those Max?, they're such a lovely surprise when they come out just as everything else is on the way out) That's about it apart from sedum, and everything shedding leaves and sinking into the ground ....
