january flowers update

It's not just the veggies that have gone crazy, the flowers are also loving this weather.  My gaura's coming into bloom now and is looking great.  I'm a little irked though.  It's hard to tell in this photo but the one on the left is a bit more pink than the one on the right, even though the label was the same.
The geum is starting to repeat-bloom as well.  Such a dainty little flower!
The ageratum is still small but a few of them are starting to flower.  I can't wait to see these guys at full size.
The vitex is huge!  It was this big when I planted it last year:
Now it's this big and growing every day:
The hydrangeas are starting to fade to pink.  Since this photo, they've actually faded to a pretty ugly brown.  But there's another set of flower heads still coming in.
And the sunflowers are still going strong.  They're obviously two different types as the one on the left is still going and the flower head isn't near opening yet.  The geraniums are doing pretty well too considering.

Love the pics of your January flowers. Gaura strikes very well from cuttings, if you wanted to boost your stocks of the whiter one you prefer. I have been taking lots of gaura cuttings this year and giving the resulting plants away!

Our vitex is going well too, it's currently in flower, I'm pleased with its progress and had been wondering how yours was - am glad it's growing well!

I'd love to see a picture of your vitex in flower, I'm really wondering what it'll look like.
