What's flowering as January draws to a close?

Spider lily
I love this calliandra, especially when it's with all it's friends.

It puts on quite a show.

In the front garden there's the white
and the red

Some hibiscus
 Allamanda - single
and double

 Canna Tropicana - Pink
A red flowering Canna

 Ixora - Prince of Orange

in a bit closer
Ixora - Gold
 The heliconias of course are still flowering

The beehive ginger changes as it matures. It throws our little flowerlets from it's "hive" and the colour changes.

They change from all gold to pink and gold giving them the name Champagne Beehive

This is my baby - a different variety of beehive ginger. Isn't she cute? This year is the first time she's flowered.
the fragrant ginger - Hedychium

It's a bit early for it but the Tibouchina is starting to bloom as well.

and I can never forget to show a frangipani.
To discover flowers from around the globe, visit Tootsie Time to see who else is flaunting their flowers this Friday.
