IT IS OFFICIALLY OCTOBER. BRIN G ON THE HALLOWEENIES
They are on their way.
More garden adventures in D.C….
I can help with part of it for you at least so that you have less to look for. The second photo is of Toad Lily (Tricyrtis hirta), and the third photo is of some variety of Begonia. As for the first and last photos I can’t be entirely certain besides getting as far as the families they’re most likely in (Asteraceae and possibly Convolvulaceae).
Vandachostylis Lou Sneary ‘blue bird’
One of my favorite orchids. I love the delicate violet flowers, but man am I partial to the buds. That neat fishhook form is inherited from the neofinetia parent and I think it lends the flowers a bit of an alien vibe.
One of my favourites too! very nice.
Haworthia fasciata #succulent
I finished the process started last week of collecting seed from my Mammillaria collection. More than a dozen new packs of seed for trading and gifts.
One of the last two figs
