|The bracts on the 'Summer Red' I cut are paler than others in my garden, possibly because they get less sun. In any case, they were quickly eclipsed by the flowers of Grevillea 'Peaches & Cream'.|
|Top view, showing off the pales rosebud-like bracts of Leucadendron 'Summer Red'|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Grevillea 'Peaches & Cream', Chrondropetalum elephantinum, Leptospermum 'Copper Glow', Leucadendron salignum 'Summer Red', Lobelia laxiflora foliage, and Nemesia 'Snow Angel'|
Amaryllis 'Zombie' is closing in on the end of its seasonal run. I initially thought I'd just refresh the vase I've had in place for the last 2 weeks but, as most of the contents of that vase were past their prime, I decided to give 'Zombie' a fresh look with a different mix of stems.
|Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) 'Zombie' has put on a very good show, although the heat from our new HVAC system dries the flowers out in record time|
|Top view: 'Zombie' is pretty flashy but I think the colorful bracts of Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset' give it a run for its money|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Hippeastrum 'Zombie', leftover noID green Chrysanthemum, Euryops virgineus 'Tali', Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset', and Fatsia japonica 'Camouflage'|
