nursery 5

Calceolaria come in all colors. They are a small indoor plant.

Some of the plants like this had the most interesting leaves and are ones I have never seen before so I am not sure if they are hybrids or imported plants.
The daylilies were particularly beautiful this year.

This shady spot had a lovely little waterfall hidden away amongst the plants so all you hear is the tinkling of water when you come near.
A most unusual orchid.
This Bromelaid is a new one to me too.
These are also Bromeliads but have interesting leaves.
