Beautiful! Do you grow these indoors, or is it warm enough where you are to grow them outdoors?

mild climate in San Diego

Cameron,

Sorry about the delayed response to your question. We just returned from a camping trip to our local mountains.

The mild climate in San Diego allows tropical plants to flourish. This is a photo of the "Queen of the Night" plant with its spent blooms. At the time of this post, all of these dried flowers have fallen off.

Neat! I'd love to be able to grow plants like that. Although, I really can't complain too much, because we have some pretty tremendous plants here on Coastal BC.

The blooms of fall

These photos were taken yesterday.

This year is the best that I have had with blooms on this "Candy cane" hotbiscus bush. These hybrids were developed in San Diego County. The blossums are huge lasting 2-3 days on the plant, one day if cut (whether the stem is in or out of water).

I move the potted plants around the trailer depending on their needs for space and shade.

Looks very nice! I have three hibiscus bushes here that do very well. Presently I'm digging up and potting all of my plants to move them all to safety when I start building my house in the spring. Your trailer looks right at home nestled amongst the plants.

I'm trying to see the structure in your avatar. Is it your home? Mid-century modern?

Just before our first freeze - these confederate roses bloom late. I caught the reflection on the way out the door to go to work. Almost looks like the flower was trying to catch a look at itself in the window reflection..

Lovely! I don't think I'm going to get any blooms on my Camelia this year.

Chinese ground orchids

The Chinese ground orchids are in bloom. They grow like gladiolas from corms. I wish that I had photographed my light yellow orchid before it dropped all of its prolific blossoms. The epiphilliums are developing their buds, straw orchids (epidendrums), tillandsias, roses, and dendobriums are just starting to bloom. This Spring is quite beautiful but a challenge for those with allergies.
