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
Allamanda - single
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.
