what's still flowering in your garden?

One of my favourites KEF,it is a striking plant,with orange blue and cream in the flowers and spiky leaves.Bit worried about it being in flower thsi late though,we have had it about 30 years and it has never flowered this late before.

Strelitzia is the proper name I think.

My Fatsia,similar in size to yours KEF,also in flower.

Mine is about 20 years old,and apart from removing old leaves,it has never had any problems even in hard frosts/snow,it looks a bit sorry for itself for a few days and then recovers.

In my unheated greenhouse Bird of Paradise plant is in full flower,never had that this late before.
