Many of the plant life are exposing their bloom for the end of the season.
The Pampas grass have bloomed their feathers.
The Peppermint plant have budded their purple scented blooms.
The Lantanas are holding their steadfast bright flowers to the first freeze of winter.
Depending on the Indian Hawthorne there are some blooms showing up on their branches.
The Oleander are blooming again especially with the help of the rain that El Paso experienced.
Mexican petunias are flowering.
The Autumn Joy plants are closing out with more blooms.
Even the Mums that were planted from last year or previous and are established are budding to bloom flowers.
These plants are all capable of holding ground through the winter as long as the winter months are not too harsh. They will revive again in the early spring or when the ground begins to warm up to support their growth. Many will go dormant not needing to be trimmed, until early, early spring. To trim now or even later will cause them to stimulate new growth. In the winter months that could put stress on that new growth. It always recommended in the warmer months to seasonal months to trim for new blooms.
