Every garden should have them - dependable stalwarts. Those plants that flower all the time, adding beauty and not requiring anything. Continually self-propagating. (fertility alley?) They are rarely showcased anymore here since they are always in flower, and yet deserve their moment in the spotlight. In a tropical garden there is always lots of green, but then also colour. The first bit of colour among all the green, is the geisha girl - it keeps on flowering year round, and is a great butterfly attractant.
Eventually the flowers are bowed down by new leaves and aerial roots as the weight pulls them down to to the ground to start a new plant.
Ground orchids do best if they have a bit of light and so they are all very happy that my latest bit of landscaping has let in more light. Their bulbs are continually multiplying and can be divided up into new individual plants.
Living in the tropics, my commonplace flowers might seem exotic to someone living in a more temperate zone. What flowers do you have in the garden that are the bones of the garden?
