Far Out Flora

Spring Flower Freakout

| 3 Comments

Hurray for flowers!

Did you know that I’m a flower freak? We still have lots succulents hanging around, but I’m flower crazy. This was taken about a month ago and many of those annuals have passed on to make room for a bunch of seedlings from past plants. Linaria reticulata ‘Flamenco’ the orangey red plant in front is one of my faves. That little shorty blue guy is Echium plantagineum with Gilia tricolor in the middle.

Gilia tricolor and friends

Coreopsis ‘Tiger Stripes’

This Coreopsis is still kicking it, but the Tidy Tips next door is gone.

Euphorbia mauritanica

See, we still have succulents! Many of them are in containers, so we can easily bring them to the new place. I LOVE this Euphorbia and hadn’t even heard of it until we moved back to California last year.

Who let the mint out?

There was some citrus mint hanging out over here when we moved in. I did something crazy and left it. I always said to keep mint in a container so it doesn’t take over the world, but it smells so good.

Calceolaria ‘Kentish Hero’

I’m a sucker for orange flowered plants and this is one of my all time favorites. There’s a good chance it will be coming with along with us to SF. Most everything else will be staying.

Nasturtium party

I’m going to collect seed from my favorite orangey red nasturtiums.

More orangey blooms

How can you not love Cuphea ‘Strybing Sunset’ (left) and Asclepias curassavica (right)? We have little baby Asclepias popping up all over the place from last year’s seed.

Shady ladies

Our sweet Begonia ‘Ramirez’ has gotten so big! This is the first time I’ve grown Nicotiana ‘Lime Green’ and it really brightens up the corner. Can you believe I snagged that fuzzy leaved Roldana petasitis ssp. cristobalensis in the back for free at an awesome Oakland plant exchange? We’re bring a chunk of it with, too. I think we’ve really spruced up the place since moving in last July, but I’m excited to start over in SF.
