Mostly Red...

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

I have finally managed to do some weeding in my garden over the weekend. And here are the recent blooms...

Trailling succulent, Ice Plant, the plant grows pretty fast. Right after this bunch of flowers have spent, I cut this long stem and used it to propagate more plants.



Moon Cactus, the plant is even prettier when a flower opened. But surprisingly, the flower is pale pink. I thought that it would be a bright one as the cactus is bright orange.



This month I am really happy that my Gerberas are re-blooming just like how I bought them many months ago...



I thought of discarding this Gerbera earlier. I am glad I didn't!



Lantana... the plant likes some pampering - a little pruning and a little feeding.



Canna Lily and Pentas, I love their bright colours...



Here is the brightest of them all... red Desert Rose ;-)



Dwarf Snapdragon's returning blooms, not prolific as you can see from here...



Rudbeckia returned with only one bloom and smaller in size...



Have a great day and happy planting!

  2. It's amazing how you were able to collect and care well for those plants in your a bit small space. I remember you showed them to us earlier. That first flower i am not familiar here yet, you you know its Sci name so i can find one too? Moreover, i didn't know even the grafted mooncactus will also flower! I thought they are being grafted so that in their natural color they already look beautiful. I haven't cared for cactus but i love looking at them too. Do you leave it in full sun?

  9. Andrea, that cactus is in the shade. And ice plant is Dorotheanthus bellidiformis 'Mezoo Trailing Red'.

    Lrong, I have spotted this plant before... placed together with edible plants. But I am still not sure. If your neighbour's plant flower later, do let me know yeah.
