Today's Flowers - Pink Blooms


Bleeding Heart Vine, Glory Bower (Clerodendrum thomsoniae)
is part of the Verbenaceae family. It is native to West Africa. The Bleeding Heart Vine is an evergreen climber that flowers from Summer through to Autumn.

Roses
are amongst the best drought tolerant plants for your garden
once they are established.

Hydrangea
The most interesting feature of showy hydrangea flowerheads is their ability to change colour according to the pH level of the soil. Hydrangeas have blue flowers where the soil is naturally acidic, and pink or red blooms in alkaline soil.


Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica)
Crepe myrtles are among the world's best flowering trees.
They are native to eastern Asia and are hardy in most parts of Australia.

Pink Aechmea fasciata bromeliad flower.
The Bromeliaceae family consists of about 46 genera, several thousand species and a bewildering number of hybrids and cultivars. All are well able to adapt to their surroundings, which can range from steamy jungles to deserts.
Cane Begonias
Also known as 'angel wing' begonias because of their distinctive leaf shape, are best as garden plants or tub specimens, sited where they can receive morning sun. The bamboo-like stems of some varieties can rise as high as two metres each spring, bearing large clusters of attractive, drooping flowers from mid summer to late autumn.

  8. Lovely flowers you posted. Onelittle anomaly in advice however, Cane Begonias can only be grown outdoor in tropical and sub-tropical climates. In S.A. where I am, they die even in the shade house.
