that blooms in october?
In October: Dahlia
The dahlia (Dahlia variabilis) is also referred to as the “Queen of Autumn”. It blooms for an unusually long period: from the height of summer until fall. In the Nolde Garden you can admire as many as 80 different varieties, some of which are heirloom. The long flowering season compensates for the work required to plant the tubers in spring, and then dig them up again before the first frost.
