Gipsy Queen Hyacinths are nearing the end of bloom.
Hyacinths outside are blooming now. Forced in pots of soil,
these can go into the ground when they fade, to bloom again next year.
Heated by two small electric heaters set to come on low fan speed when the temperature dips below 37 degrees in a climate where prolonged freezes are rare, plants are grown for pleasure.
Pentas cuttings, not as happy as they would be in a warmer season, will
go outside for the delight of butterflies when the weather warms.
In the blue pot on the shelf above them, Neoregelia bromeliad.
Pots of Pineapple Sage with a branch of Russelia
equisetiformis hanging over them with similar blooms.
Persian Shield cuttings are blooming, blossoms usually only seen in winter.
Strobilanthes dyerianus is used in the summer garden for purple foliage.
Kalanchoe in bloom at left, cuttings in near view beginning to bloom.
Behind is a pot of pink Begonias.
I'm thinking of taking out some Begonias and putting a Neoregelia bromeliad in
the pot with Begonias, an idea suggested by Steve Asbell of Rainforest Gardens
When warm weather comes I may combine Kalanchoes with Graptopetalum.
Thank you for visiting my greenhouse.
We're celebrating February Bloom Day with Carol of May Dreams Gardens.
My outdoor blooms are on Secrets of a Seedscatterer. February Gold is the theme.
