There is no shortage of beautiful volunteer sunflowers all over my garden, for the most part I let them grow where they sprout, at varying sizes.
A yearly favorite, 12 foot sunflower loom overhead.
Leonotis (Wild Dagga)
Bulbine frutescens – they open and close with the daylight.
Fuchsia boliviana — Red Bolivian Fuchsia. Added bonus they produce a tasty fruit similar to a grape.
Rose amongst a tree lupin. Perfect!
Hibiscus tree is starting to flower again. Excellent!
Rhodochiton atrosanguineum, so strange.
Abutilon pictum Thompsonii (Varigated Flowering Maple)
White Guara flowers all August
Alcea ‘Peaches and Dreams. This is it’s second year and it’s really gone overboard. Fighting for the tallest thing in my garden, this hollyhock is neck and neck with my jerusalem artichoke. 12+ feet and counting. Non stop blooms, like a slow motion firework.
The very first cyclamen flower of the season. Just when you start to miss them again, they appear.
Chilean Glory Vine – Eccremocarpus scaber
Thalictrum delavayi ‘Hewitt’s Double’ – a late flowering minature thalictrum!
Anigozanthos flavidus (Kangaroo Paw)
Impatiens Congo Cockatoo
Orange Daylily, perhaps Hemerocallis ‘Kwanso’. The last bloom on the stalk…
One of many different shades of gladiolus
I hope this satisfies your need for plant eye candy.. Months of work put into a 35 second photo spread. Calms the mind, feeds the soul.
