The pink cluster of the Panama rose/ Rondeletia leucophylla is a sight that’s sure to gladden hearts! Not only are the blooms pretty but the fragrance in the evenings, is wonderful! Since it was growing straggly I had pruned it last year after the flowering season was over. Recently I noticed the pink buds and waited for the first few clusters to open in all its glory. The picture below is from early February last year. Winter’s a dusty season in our parts but this year we’ve had some rain since New Year’s day and our surroundings look cleaner.
These two bromeliads were gifted to me by my blog friend Lotusleaf of Garden Tropics when she had come to our city last year. The growth hasn’t been good so far but over the years I hope to have these bromeliads looking healthier and happier!
Although the picture of the match-stick plant is blurry I’m posting it anyway. At least it gives you the idea of what it looks like/resembles.
