A flower from the tiny rooted rose that nearly died in a previous heatwave. I planted it in the ground and it recovered. I think the cultivar is 'Erfurt' (Kordes, 1939)
At least someone around here is enjoying the heat. A Pentas selection or cultivar; I planted it for the butterflies. This plant will live over winter, looking miserable but surviving. It's a heat lover.
The Kalanchoe luciae flower stem is six feet tall, at least. No flowers open yet, but close.
Several are sending up stalks; there are other rosettes that will replace the bloomers, which will die after flowering.
Slightly damaged 'Rouge Royale', but oh so fragrant!
A few hours of heat, and...toast.
Some roses manage to keep going, heat and drought not withstanding.
Grevillea 'Moonlight' continues to grow and bloom
Aloe fosteri's first flower continues to shoot up.
Butterflies were at the Bougainvillea, which is also happy with the heat.
