    I thought Hamamelis virginiana was a late winter bloomer?

    Dot, this native species is a true fall bloomer. But many other Hamamelis are late winter/ spring flowering shrubs.

    I'm still enjoying your pictures. Now that you explained the bloom times of the hamamelis I realise that I saw some in bloom a few weeks ago at the local park. Never knew that before. I tried to take pictures, but couldn't get the focus right. Thanks for posting those.

    thank you for your comments, Hera.

    I think H. virginiana is a pretty native shrub, but it is unfortunatly not as showy as late winter bloomer

    A few pics of plants I grow under artificial lights. These are tall Sedum cuttings (Hylotelephium). I picked the cuttings rather late, in mid August.They rooted so easily that I decided not to remove all the flower buds. Of course, the color of the blooms is lighter indoor than in a garden

    Thai Siam Queen Basil I have grown for raising a predator of thrips (Orius) Thrips love to destroy my orchids in summer and I introduce Cucumeris or Swirskii, but it is not enough. Orius is useful for adult stage. But it is expensive so it is interesting to raise them on pollen. I found this basil userful for raising them since they are free flowering and compact.
