What’s Blooming in Florida during November
Thank you to Steven Brown from the University of Florida for sending out such amazing emails! Below are three, Florida friendly, plants currently blooming along the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Saltbush (Baccharis halimifolia)
Saltbush’s shrubby habit allows it to blend into the background in most landscapes. It is rarely recommended by either garden designers or landscape architects. However, it deserves a place in the foreground of many naturalized landscapes. It is a useful shrub or small tree for reclaiming wet sites and can be used around retention ponds and basins. Saltbush is resistant to salt sprays, and thus useful in seaside plantings. Learn more about Saltbush.
Silk-Floss Tree (Ceiba speciosa)
Imagine a rounded canopy adorned with thou- sands of large, starry, fleshy, pink flowers on leaf- less branches. This has to be one of the most spec- tacular flowering trees on the planet. Most trees begin to lose their leaves in September, in prepa- ration for their stunning flower display. After flowering, the trees remain leafless until March, at which time they again suddenly explode, this time in green leaves. Learn more about the Silk-Floss Tree.
Christmas Senna (Cassia bicapsularis)
A true chameleon, this sprawling shrub can morph into a clambering vine or be coaxed into a small unsteady treelet. Each year, it seems that the entire population of Senna pendula blooms simultaneously so that there is a loud shout of yellow over a wide geographic area. The precise time of seasonal flowering may vary from year to year so that in some years, early November heralds the best colors, while in the successive year, late December becomes the showiest period.
