And the color is...


After a two year wait, the Pink Crinum (variety unknown) proves that it is indeed pink.  And it joins several other of my plants that are producing various shade of pink in their scattered blooms.

The Chinese Indigo (Indigofera kirilowii) is producing a second, lesser round of its cascading flowers.

As the temperatures increase, the Pink Oxalis (Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea') is producing less of its small bright blooms but their bright spots of color are still appreciated.

The pale pink of the Purple Oxalis (Oxalis triangularis subsp. papilionaceae 'Atropurpurea') still pop up occasionally.

The intense pink of the Rock Rose (Pavonia lasiopetala) will continue to be scattered across the plant throughout the summer.

Surprisingly, Pink Rain Lily (Zephyranthes rosea) produce their pink blooms even though my garden has received no rain of late.

And the Ground Orchid (Spathoglottis plicata) blooms that started in the greenhouse this winter have continued going strong.


  1. Very pretty blooms.
    I like that indigo.
    And, my ground lily has done nothing. It's in a pot. Maybe I should put it in the ground.

    1. My Ground Orchid is also in a pot. This is by far the best bloom production it has ever had. I attribute it to staying protected in the greenhouse this winter & thus receiving more sunshine than it typically does in my shady gardens.

  2. I tend to avoid pink, but maybe I shouldn't.
