There are so many plants in flower at the moment the problem is choosing which to include and which to leave out.
This ginger has the most delightful fragrance. On a warm Summer's evening it wafts through the garden. When this ginger is in flower it is my favourite plant in the garden.
The beehive ginger are getting larger. There are dozens of them now. I'm going to divide the clump in Autumn and start a new one somewhere else.
The red ginger doesn't flower but has the most wonderful red stems and leaf veins. It dies back over Winter so is always a welcome visitor in the warmer months and gets to be included here today.
The orange heliconias are opening up further and lots of new 'buds" are appearing.
These are doing well too. We divided and transplanted them in Spring and they've shot ahead.
Next a few hibiscus.
I don't know any of their names (sorry).
They make a great hedge and privacy screen around the pool area and their flowers are a real bonus.
This double hibiscus is such a delicate pink.
Of course I have to include at least one frangipani.
The red canna can't be ignored either, but the constant rain knocks the cannas' flowers about and most of them are looking quite ragged.
The golden candles flowers right through the warmer months.
The ixoras flower constantly as well. They come in so many colours and I've discovered they will flower in full sun or shade.
If you'd like to see more flowers being flaunted head over to Tootsie Time.
