No Star Like TheeMonday, February 27, 2012
The hoya flowers have opened... revealing their attractive waxy, pinkish purple, star-shaped flowers. They feel hard and have a weak scent. Nonetheless, a wondrous sight to behold :-D
I should have included these beautiful Hibiscus Swamp Mallow flowers in my earlier post. The plant re-grown and re-flowered many blooms before the Chinese New Year celebration. I really enjoy watching the huge blooms taking turns to blossom.
Hmmm... this is the first time I see my Acerola with so many buds appearing at the same time...
The Plumbago flowers are always screaming for my attention! The white ones that were blossoming at the back have to be discarded as they were intruding into my neighbour's compound! One thing about this plant is that it tend to spread its foliage out wide before flowering. I have to prune the stems very often.
When the Mexican Plume starts to flower, they will bloom more and more. Love their bright orange bracts and flowers ;-)
And I am so glad to have spotted a Lemon Ginger flower bud that is almost ready to open in the morning. I thought it will open soon but by afternoon, the bud still stayed the same ;-( Sigh... will post the pic in next post then.
The Fountain Plant spread its branches even further than Plumbago. Though the plant is now growing nicely and getting prettier by the days, I have problem keeping the bush looking tidy.
The planter isn't tall enough for the branches to trail down, so I bundled them up in a tomato cage. Anyone has experience training this plant into an upright bush rather than a trailing plant? Tell me, tell me... I would love to know how.
Have a great week!
