Although it's been blooming for about ten years, this is only the second year that my Magnolia macrophylla has made cones. This year, there are even more than last.
Clerodendrum trichotomum 'Carnival' has gorgeous leaves all summer and jasmine-scented white hummingbird bait flowers for a couple of months.
I look forward to their berries in the fall. Such great metallic blue and turquoise gems set in the red calyxes where the former flowers once were.
The Callicarpa or Beautyberry certainly earns it's name this time of year.
The evergreen Euonymus fruiting again.
Our warm summer made Agave ovatifolia 'Frosty Blue' very happy. It was very sad last winter and I thought that perhaps it had given up the ghost but it's come back like a trooper and put on quite a bit of growth.
We're supposed to have strong winds and significant rainfall tonight and more rain for the rest of the week. Come on sun, I need a bit of dryish weather to start planting these!
The largest of several boxes of bulbs that have been appearing on my front porch lately. Who was the braniac who thought that planting a bunch of bulbs would be a fun thing to do at the same time as playing with plants in the new greenhouse? The gardener at this place clearly isn't much of a thinker!
