Even if we are already experiencing heat at above 30°C with Heat Index of 36°C, some of our plants don't seem to care. They love the heat and humidity.
Impatiens balsamina is starting to dry as they are very succulent and matures fast during the dry season. The seeds are now scaterring and will voluntarily emerge again in May or June come rainy months.
close up of the flower of 4 o'clock or Mirabilis jalapa
This is the only hippeastrum which flowered on its own without dormancy, and flowers more than once per year. Others definitely becomes dormant and flowers only when watered or placed in refrigerated storage for sometime. I am not sure if this is H reticulatum var striatifolium or H reticulatum var striatifolium 'Mrs Garfield'
A mini anthurium which delighted me with a very long flower bloom life. The oldest flower has been there for already 2 months and now 2 more followed and it is still there. It is a newly single plant.
adeniums love the dry hot months, so this is expected
The butterfly pea just started flowering, i let it climb on the matting wire, and that was lovely. Actually, i thought i planted a blue one, but surprisingly it is white. Anyway, it is also lovely,
and a few friends are already waiting for some seeds. Next rainy season
i will not conceed without the blue Clitoria ternatea.
Clitoria ternatea pods will mature this dry season, ready again for planting for the rainy months
newly opening Hoya bicolensis
No GBBD from me will be posted without hoyas. Of course, they are the main characters in my garden, they just exchanged places in blooming.
Hoya bicolensis a day after opening
Hoya pubicorolla ssp anthracina - this has been flowering continuously for already a few months
Hoya buotii purple buds
The nodes of Hoya madulidii are almost all laden with buds, i was so expectant that there will be a lot of black flowers simultaneously blooming. But everytime i go home on weekends, the older buds are aborted. I am so disappointed, but what can we do, we really lack water in the province during this months of extremely hot weather.
The summary of my garden is this reflection. How do you like it?
