Wow, I love those Violet Tubeflowers Kathleen. Is it meant to be an indoor or outdoor plant? It reminds me of a brugmansia.


Kathleen that is the prettiest hibiscus I have ever seen. Just love its blooms.
What is up with these amaryllis? I have one now that is deformed and is bent over. It is only about four inches high and starting to bloom. Something very wrong with it. LOL! It will be fun to watch your three stemmed one bloom.


Oh, wow, I want one of those Violet Tubeflowers. Are they tricky to grow indoors?


Hi Kathleen~~ Your photos are mouthwatering. I can only imagine how nice it must be to greet these beauties in the morning. The Hibiscus looks like a parrot tulip of the Victorian Era. The violet tube flowers are absolutely divine. I might have to get me one of those.

I bet the plants love the humidity as much as the sunlight. The Hibiscus and Violet Tubeflowers are beautiful. Really wonderful photos.

I would love to have a bathroom with all that natural light! Ours has no windows so nothing will grow in there. The tubeflowers are gorgeous.


No wonder that's where you spend a lot of time. That Hibiscus is so pretty and those Violet Tubeflowers are one I'll have to look for too.


They are both outstanding flowers~You take such lovely photos! Maybe it's time to add a solartube or two to my hall bathroom...The bathtub would be a perfect greenhouse! gail


I can see why you are so smitten with the violet tubeflowers. Enchanting little bells and unusual for a house plant. Haven't see hibiscus do so well inside before either. I'm not usually a lover of hibiscus but I do like the doubles and the ruffled ones.
