There are only hints  of color outside in this suburb of Boston -- the 
odd flower of Viola odorata and Primula polyanthus, Spiranthes odorata 
(but will it last the winter?), and the fading heads of Coreopsis 
helianthoides -- but the greenhouses are going strong, with several 
kinds of Camellia, Erica caniculata, Grevillea thelemanniana, Othonna 
carnosa, Oxalis carnosa, hirta, lobata, and rubra, Nerine bowdenii 
stefani, Rosmarinus officinalis, Amaryllis belladonna, Romulea 
autumnalis, Schlumbergera. Narcissus 'Nylon', Lachenalia rubida, and 
Saxifraga fortunei that was brought in for seed set.  These all find 
the environment of a cold (quite cold) greenhouse compatible.
