Angel Trumpet

The Angel Trumpet, Burgmansia, has put on quite the show this Spring.  It has made at least 50 flowers.

It went for years without blooming and recently started making a few flowers in the Fall.  I am hoping it will now bloom on and off throughout the season.

Several plants that have not bloomed for years, decided to finally put out flowers this year.  I usually keep plants as long as they are alive, even if they have not bloomed.  It paid off this year.

The red lily is commonly called School House or Hurricane Lily as it blooms at the beginning of school and hurricane season. It has not bloomed in such a long time that I had to do some research to remember what it was called.  It is also know as Oxblood Lily (Rhodophiala bifida).

This Passion Flower was in really bad shape.  I had left it in large pot in the far end of the yard.  I brought it closer to the backdoor and tended to it on a daily basis.  I was rewarded with fragrant flowers.  It hasn’t bloomed in such a long time, that I thought it was purple and was quite surprised to see it was white!
