This is one of my favorites. It is called 'angelonia', and the cold won't hurt the plant, but makes the flowers look ugly. Then, with a little mild weather, it will start to bloom again.
THIS beauty is called Turk's Cap, or Christmas Bells. It will bloom nicely until the end of spring, or until hot weather gets here.
One charming attribute of most of these flowers is that they are all so easy to propagate. This is one that will grow about anywhere. Just stick it in the ground- It will grow!
This one is breath taking, it is so beautiful! I am really taken with blue flowers anyway, and this one is BLUE! The picture looks lavender, but it is really blue! It is called a Blue Sky Vine, and is pretty aggressive, but I don't care. It could cover up my house, that would be o.k.
I love that it blooms so late. January 1 is pretty late!
I have several more. I will put them in my next post.
