I love tropical gardening. But here in Houston, old man winter is poised to snuff it all out any month from November to February. But for now, all is green after cool weather and wonderful Autumn rains.
Ficus lutea from Africa
My agave collection
These will need thinning out next Spring. Ouch!
Giant Bauhinia leaves
Young castor beans grown from seed.
Young variegated banyan fig tree surrounded by other beauties.
Neoregelia bromeliads will need to come in during frosts.
Coleus 'You're So Vein' is still growing strong. This was my best coleus of the year.
Prickly pear and some weird bromeliads in pots.
Variegated Alstromeria frolics in the other foliage.
And finally, the exotic seed wings of the rain tree...Koelreuteria elegans.
Sometimes they stay this color while other winters they turn completely pink.
That's it for this November. I'll be putting everything away in the little greenhouse by next week.
Happy Gardening from David/:0)
