Colour in the garden again

There is always lots of colour in my garden, but it seems more so once the sun comes out!
 The lipstick plant  has such different flowers!

then my favourite heleconias never stop... and I never tire of them.

The bromeliad is lovely on its own,and then tiny purple flowers erupt from the center.
the cocoa zingiber goes red before it begins to collape from the lack of heat and humidity.  It will be back again next year.


  1. Oh, I love that lipstick plant. I wonder if it would grow here. Beautiful ginger! My gingers are dormant right now, but should be back by summer. Check out my GBBD post...I have a very similar photo to one of yours! : )

  2. Thanks for the great photos! I especially like the neoregelia bromeliad that is of course similar to floridagirl's! I can't wait to see that heliconia flower!

  3. Floridagirl, yes I saw that - we do grow very similar plants, and that led me to do some research on the lipstick plant, I am working on a post about it right now. Rainforest Gardener, I was wondering if I had posted too many photos of those heleconias.
