End of the month means it’s time for Hot, Loud, and the Proud. Fellow blogger, Noel from A Plant Fanatic in Hawaii, has quite a show this August. Comment your vote below…for the hottest, loudest, and proudest.
Our Blue Passion Flower has been a little slow out of the gate, but has been kicking out a few open blossoms each week.
The Aeonium makes a sweet contrast for our delicate flowering Helianthemum.
This Dahlia can be found in Golden Gate Park next to the Conservatory of Flowers. Each season, they plant a huge bed of cultivars.
Hebe in the hood. Not certain of the species…any thoughts?
This shrub/vine has been a vigorous grower in our garden. We thought at first it was a Lonicera species…but now think it is probably a Cape Honeysuckle (Tecomaria species).
Another fine specimen from the Dahlia Garden, the Delta Red S R.
Here’s my pick for ‘The Proud’. On top of Strawberry Hill in SF, we found Matti grafted to an old tree trunk. Well, I couldn’t see my house from there…but you can see the Golden Gate Bridge (if it wasn’t foggy that day).
