October Blooms

False Castor Oil Plant Fatsia Japonica

The False Castor Oil Plant (Fatsia Japonica) waits for summer to pass, and then for autumn to bed down a little before deciding to flower.

October 2017, rear garden, Staffordshire, England.

  1. Well I can’t fault a latecomer! Nice picture Pete! Must get out with the lens in the next week now that our rains have stopped (momentarily!).

  2. Super photo and bet the your bees are happy with late blooms. I love the Japanese fatsia and wish it could survive our icy winters!

  3. This doesn’t look exactly like our button bush, but it has the same ball-like shape and white flowers: close enough! I get such a kick out of flowers that have those extended stamens. They’re just cute.

  4. Whoa. What an unusual bloom. It’s like the hybrid child of a sea polyp and an exploding firework fashioned when Time unexpectedly halted mid-tick.
