In our 10b zone, blooming trees are common year around, and in February is the Shooting Star turn. The Shooting Star or Starburst tree as is more commonly known around here is not native of these parts, some say it comes from the Philippines but no one knows for sure. Today these trees are found everywhere in South Florida; they have become a favorite of gardeners, the tree grows fast and it’s unquestionably a beautiful tree even when is not blooming. The only negative is the nuisance of the many suckers it produces.
Does anyone know the name of the purple plant with round white flowers in this picture?
I found this small cactus full of blooms this morning in the back of my garden. I totally forgot it was there.
I would like to end by saying GO RAVENS, we are hosting a Super Bowl party on Sunday, and the garden is ready.
