Welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom Day for January 15th. Here at Plant Exchange on the Northern Plains, we are having the last warm January day before a week of predicted below freezing temperatures and chances for snow. Indoors, a sunny day adds welcome light and solar warmth.
We’ll see blooms only indoors for the next 3-4 months. African violets have several blooms a year and are require little care once established.
The last few buds and flowers of potted camellia shrubs that started blooming in November.
A favorite begonia, enjoyed for foliage, has a small flower. Curiously, another cutting of the same begonia in another room also has a flower.
Poinsettias outlast the holidays. Here we keep the cheery red through Valentine’s Day, when days are longer.
