Many colours of a Tropical Blooming Friday

I have planted Impatiens of different colours in the shady parts of my garden. Among the few shade loving bloomers, impatiens are the the most prolific bloomers.
The Salvia is in full sun, but it can tolerate some amount of shade.

The golden Gerbera has started blooming now.


The Amazon lily is another shade loving plant which has put out flowers in deep shade.



The yellow poinsettia is slowly covering itself with pale yellow bracts.

  14. We are lucky in California to be warm enough for blooming - but we don't get your lush blooms. Not unless we irrigate like mad. Lovely to see these vibrant colors.
