Everyday I come home and walk around the garden to see what is going on. I am looking forward to seeing my garden in bloom soon. My white coneflowers are about to bloom! They are the best cut flower! There are now 2 irises
This is quite possible one of my favorite plants. It is called a BAT FACE plant (http://www.magnoliagardensnursery.com/productdescrip/Cuphea_Bat.html). It is a very interesting little plant! It is in the cuphea family. The flower is red with a dark purple center that resembles a bat face. Hummingbirds love this plant...I can see why
Gloriosa Lily (http://www.floridata.com/ref/G/glor_rot.cfm), is coming up. However a limb fell on it during one of the storms and decapitated it!!! I hope it will be okay though. I got these from my grandma, and they are very unique. They reproduce fairly quickly. I can't wait to get some babies off of it to spread around the yard.
I have lots rooting in this container. A four o'clock tree (http://www.gardenfairy.com/garden/mirabilis.htm) that my aunt gave me (tall branch in the rear). My mom also has this plant. It came from my grandmother, and they rooted it from her. I will plant it soon. I also have two branches from some type of shrub my aunt gave me. I don't know what it is, I don't know if she knew or not. It is growing though...so soon there will be pictures on my blog of it and all of my blogger buds can tell me what it is. Lastly we have native azalea (the ones flowering), I plucked these straight out of the woods Sunday. So far, so good...lets hopw they make it!
