Random Backyard Shots
Just some pics around the yard today.
Here are my Brugmansias...
Just got these a few weeks ago. Hoping they bloom this year.
My oldest Brugmansia (got it off E-bay in October 2010) is budding already...
Thailand Giant Elephant ear. Seems to be a pretty good grower, looking forward to seeing how it grows.
My Potted banana is growing a lot faster than my Saba Banana in the ground.
Butterfly ginger getting a very late start this year. Alocasia and caladiums are right on schedule.
The electricity went out in my yard in February and my Livistona was left unheated during a night of 19F! It had a lot of damage, but it is coming back well. The Purple heart plants in this pic have survived 2 winters.
My largest and by far most robust alocasia.
A look at my Sabal Minor palm with some tropical "annuals". It's been surviving the winter in the ground since 2009.
