Pots Too ManyMonday, December 07, 2015
It is interesting to note that the Maranta leuconeura var. erythroneura blooms frequently. The foliage however didn't seem to grow that fast though.
My red Gloxinia is still in bloom and the pic below shows a second flower opened. Lovely sight to behold indeed!
This newly blossomed flower of my Hibiscus syriacus is hidden by the shrub's own foliage. Good thing the flower is huge enough to be noticeable.
When it flared up wide and big on the first day, I manage to snap a pic from the side. When looked closer I found many ants in the centre. They were probably attracted to the sweet pollen.
Here is one pic from afar...
The big bloom of the Hibiscus syriacus is really striking. Each time the flower shows up, even one, it makes me glad. I also like the Mexicanum Stonecrop I planted below the shrub, onto the soil of the pot. The bright green colour of the stonecrop made it look really outstanding :-)
The pic below was taken on the first day the flower opened.
Strangely a fly-like insect (not a bee) came for the sweet nectar of the basil flower...
Here is shot of the double flowering Gloxinia from behind. Pretty?
You have a beautiful day :-)
