Wow! It's still flowering! That's amazing!

They stopped flowering here about two months ago.

The birds-of-paradise have started flowering couple of weeks ago...which is really early.

What were your temperatures two months ago!!!!!!!!

Meanie, are you asking a question?

Agapathus starts flowering here in April through June.

Temps here two months ago were in the upper 70's
to mid-80's, (with some days in the low 90's) which is normal.

Just making a point ;)
They've barely started back into growth here in April! Your April temps top our summer temps I think (not sure what they translate to in real money though as I only do centigrade).
To give you an example my winter blooming Salvia gesneriiflora is still putting a few blooms out.

Just giving you a bad time! I have to do that every once in while. LOL! :>)

I forgot mid June was very hot here. (mostly between 28 - 35ÂșC) where I live (much hotter inland).

This past winter here in San Diego (and most of California) is now the hottest on record, beating last winter's former record hot, dry temps. It's so crazy, you just don't know. Overall, the plants/trees here look horrible! This historic drought has taken its toll. :>(

No sign of the water restrictions being lifted then?

Are you kidding. The water restrictions are just getting worse. I officially am only suppose to water my plants twice a week Sunday and Thursday, each day only for 5 minutes. That's so insane!!!
