Favorite Plant For March 2017
No surprise: Leucospermum 'Yellow Bird'.
...Leucospermum 'Flame Giant':
Favorite March runners up: the very photogenic Leucadendron discolor 'Pom Pom'...
...and the roses. The wonderful roses.
It's also fun to see an Iris flower again. Our long drought and mandatory water reduction rules meant plants survived but did not bloom.
'Yellow Bird' is the winner, though. And a new bonus--the hummingbirds and bees seem to have figured out how to access the nectar in the flowers. The hummers go through the open center with their beaks, while the bees access by maneuvering through the lowest "pins" where there is the most space.
