End-of-Spring downunder - the Pentas bed is starting to take off. (Pentas lanceolata)

Began planting this bed back at the end of January with little cuttings - have just added a few more plugs I got from the nursery last week ... it's going well.

Delonix - they sure can reach 2 metres...had a few in my last garden that got that high .... but I won't be letting these grow to that height!

Pansypotter - if you ever visit my little corner of the world you'll see lots of these. They are a drought and heat hardy plant that has been grown here for donkey's years! I love them - so reliable and so colourful.
