Friday Afternoon Garden Club 10.29.2010

Bergenia cordifolia ...  in bloom!
It’s FAC time in The Art Garden!  Grab your favorite beverage and pull up a chair.  You didn’t really want to work this afternoon anyway, did you?  Leave a comment to join the garden party.
Today’s topic:
A horticultural anomaly! The warm, dry fall that we've experienced here in the Denver area has many plants hanging onto their foliage longer, or coloring up a bit later - or even differently - than the norm. This photo of bergenia in full bloom was taken just a a few days ago.  Typically, bergenia is an early spring bloomer. I wrote about it here back in April. Have you noticed anything weird or different in your garden lately (other than the seasonal ghouls and goblins, of course)?
