A Week of Flowers – Day 7 – Tropical Punch

It’s the last day of AWOF and I finally got the title right. Oh, well. I will be spreading some more tropical warmth north via flowery photos.

The scent of Moonflowers perfumes the night in summer.

The fabulous Portea ‘Candy’ Bromeliad lights up a shady corner.

Another front porch container has a Desert Rose.

Last, but not least, a Florida classic – the ‘Red Admiral’ Hibiscus.

That concludes a Week of Flowers this December. To see more flowery photos, visit Cathy at http://www.wordsandherbs.wordpress.com.

    I have fallen in love with that Moon Flower! I can only imagine the scent. I had Nicotiana for scent in my Moon Bed this year. The pink and purple flower is also a stunner and very eye-catching. Thanks for sharing! xx

    Colorful selection Amy. Gorgeous! I tried to grow Moonflowers once from seed my sister passed along but they didn’t make it. Yours are lovely.

    • Thanks, Chris. No, I have a Pixel cell phone and use the portrait setting a lot. The moonflower was taken at night with the auto flash. Total serendipity as I couldn’t really see what I was taking a picture of.

    That’s a fantastic collection of flowers! I’ve yet to see a flower on my Malaysian orchid but perhaps 2022 will be THE year. Do you fertilize your plant?

  7. Hibiscus are wonderfully exotic and exuberant. They have to be my ‘paradise’ flower!
