The Nailpolish Bromeliad Neoregalia spectabilis has come out with its rare pink flowers now.
Alocacia Metallica has dark leaves which look like a horse's face. They look striking against a wall. Small plantlets of this alocacia are sprouting up all over my garden now.
The huge leaves of this Anthurium have light coloured veins.
This is a native Lemon grass .The blades are razor sharp- I have had my fingers slashed by them twice! I use the leaves to flavour tea, and also for Thai cooking.
This is an Alpinia - a ginger. It is like a beam of sunshine in a corner of the garden.Its shell like flowers are also attractive.
Leaves have so many different shapes, textures and colours. I wonder why we overlook them .
