28 flowers on this Setcreasea were in bloom yesterday morning. A new record for Tropical Texana!
They ramble all over the place and I love it!
This orange Justicia is also blooming at a record pace.
The blackfoot daisy went dormant during the heat, but now is back. I really like this plant!
I worked hard to keep this purple lantana alive and it has paid off. It's sweeping over the agaves in waves.
...and waves. Our car lights were fixed on it one night and we saw a garden fairy moth going from flower to flower. Nice to know that it's a pollen source for that elusive creature.
Of course, the agaves have enjoyed the rain as well and they have had a nice summer...probably the only plants that can say such a thing.
That's it from Tropical Texana.
Special note: I've changed the wallpaper on my website thanks to a lead from my friend over in Miami. If you use blogger, it's free and they have some really nice ones.
I was happy to find one that matched my style. I'm just amazed how something as simple as a background can change the whole feel of a garden blog. Hope you like it.
Thanks for visiting.
