I’ve been posting a lot of outdoor settings in our yard and gardens lately and I hope that you’ve been enjoying them and finding inspiration for your garden. Since I live in a very tropical climate, my garden is quite green and lush year round.
I love how I can go out and clip something from my garden year round like these Pink Ginger flowers. You can often find these in the floral department of some grocery stores and not just down here in Miami. Roses…ours are so different and nothing like yours.
We planted these Panama Rose plants close to the pool and they’ve been there for years now. Maybe a mistake, because they constantly have to be pruned back but right now they are attracting bees and butterflies so we will wait until late summer. These plants are very similar to Penta and you’ll find that those grow well in most summer climate zones.
You may not be able to grow orchids where you live, but during summer they definitely do well in shaded areas outdoors. We buy our orchids at the home improvement store and when they finishing flowering we put them outside and wait for a re-bloom. Don’t throw yours out because they will re-bloom!
We have several of these self watering globes (affiliate) in various potted plants and if you travel (as we do) they will keep your plants from getting thirsty.
This pink plumeria is the oldest tree in our garden and I’m estimated it to be around 30 or so years old. Plumeria can do well in a pot, but be sure to keep it well drained and in a sunny spot.
