Flower World had the least expensive ornamental kale/cabbage of any nursery I've visited. Add to that the 10% discount that e-club members get (you can sign up here) on all purchases, and it was tempting to add a few more. However, there are already quite a few of these lovelies around the garden. Speaking of OK & Cabbage, have you ever grown them from seed? What was your experience?
Berberis were putting on their autumn show!
Dahlias still looking fresh and happy.
Flower World isn't in a rush to escort autumn out the door quite yet.
It's wonderful to still find so many pumpkins, gourds, and squash available for Thanksgiving! Soon these tables will be covered with cut evergreens, swags, berries, etc. of all sorts.
In the midst of autumn, there are already signs of spring! Their spring bulb selection (the unplanted ones) was extensive as will be their offering of potted bulbs in late winter/early spring.
Sweet double primroses will bloom through the winter and into spring.
Philodendron 'Prince of Orange looks especially nice with these blue pots. Not so sure about the red pot people.
Sansevieria kirkii var. pulchra in glorious bloom caused serious plant lust but the price of the large blooming specimens was a bit high for me.
Fortunately, in another part of the nursery there were lots of smaller ones for less than half the price. Isn't that foliage glorious? This one came home with me!
Ah, there she is, my girlfriend, Monrovia! I get misty thinking of her.
I'm especially fond of this one but they get fairly large and where would I put it?
Interestingly variegated hibiscus foliage.
The tropicals go on and on.
Philodendron 'Pink Princess' was also tempting as I remember being impressed with the large one growing at Portland Nursery on Division.
More fab foliage.
Even some dangerous plants!
This Cryptanthus was on a table simply labeled "Bromeliads." Easy-care plants, these are addictive and this one was too lovely not to come home with me.
Ludisia discolor, the Jewel Orchid, has got gorgeous foliage.
I can't remember a visit to Flower world when there weren't hibiscus in bloom.
Cissus discolor, aka Rex Begonia Vine and Tapestry Vine kept jumping in and out of my cart. Such a beautiful plant that likes part to full shade. It'd be very happy in my greenhouse and there's still a bit of overhead room... It eventually stayed at Flower World because I wasn't really sure about it's hardiness and, since it was new to me. there was the novelty factor to consider. Perhaps if they're still there on my next visit, one will leap into my cart.
What do you think of this plant?
