The Hot, the Loud and the Proud, September '10

Today is the last day of September and I remembered that it is the day for posting pictures of tropical plants. Most of the plants in my garden are tropical plants anyway. The Sanchezia shown above has really got masses of 'hot' flowers now, and the leaves remind one of tiger stripes.
The Bird of Paradise, Strelitzia regina was named after the family of a queen.

The Guzmania flower will last for months.
My thanks to Noel at A Plant Fanatic in Hawaii for hosting the meme.

  7. Wow, you even have the Bird of Paradise flower in the garden! It is really gorgeous. It is difficult to grow in the lowlands here.
