Love the New Guineas. I have one with the same leaf and an intense red flower. Are they perennial outdoors for you?

And is that Lavender? I never thought of Lavender growing there but I guess it is perfectly suited.

Thanks folks! I forgot to give names in my rush/time squeeze to resize & upload pix. Sorry!

Alex, Most of these beauties were purchased from our local Home Depot (big box store). Some come from nurseries, gifts from family or friends and trades as well.

Ha ha, PV, come on down (or over)!! :) That variegated Hibiscus 'Cooperi' has been stingy...that's the 1st bloom this year.

Thanks Richard!

I've been trying to determine that fact, Shrubs n bulbs...whether or not the NG Impatiens are perennial for us. I've have them before & couldn't keep them alive. I don't really have shady areas & I've not been known to keep up on regular watering ~so it had been sink or swim for these guys in the past. They're currently under a deciduous tree, but I'm hoping the cooler temps when the tree loses its leaves will help keep them alive. I also have one with an intense red. They are some of my favorite foliage plants!

Yes, that is Lavandula 'Goodwin Creek' with the Hibiscus. I have several other Lavenders. We have a Mediterranean type climate here & they do well if I remember NOT to fertilize them. :)

I killed my 1st Tibouchina, Tina...so I'm happy this one is doing better.

If you don't mind me asking, what are #5 and 6? How is your Gardenia still blooming? Mine quit 8 weeks ago. Lovely plants, by the way!

Thanks, Jiju & Cheryl!

Don't mind at all, Cheryl...5th one is Clerodendrum ugandense (Blue Butterflies) & 6th one is Justicia carnea.

I don't know the secret of the Gardenia (gift from my dentist!). I planted it out in May, I think, after having it as a houseplant (where it was none too happy ~it dropped many buds & only had 2 blooms). I think it likes being outdoors!

gorgeous! Ok, now what is the second to last plant, the one that looks like Dr. Sues's version of a sedum?!

RE: West Coast style Fall color Pt 1

Thanks Garden Witch! Dr. Suess made a lot of neat plants, didn't he?!
That is Crassula 'Baby Necklace'.

Such a variety of pretty things! I want to get a Blue Butterflies next year. This year, when I saw them, I already had so many things to plant and knew I needed to get it all in before buying more. Next year I will fill in the empty spots! A garden is never complete, right?!

Yes, I love variety, Sher! When we installed our pool, I put in new garden beds around. I put in 200+ plants in one day! Never again! Whew! You're right...it's a work in progress...never finished! Now, I have to work at whacking back our jungle!

Beautiful! Just beautiful!! I love seeing pictures of your plants. They inspire me. I especially liked the Crassula "Baby Necklace." Haven't seen any of that here. Must find some. Keep posting those pictures.

RE: West Coast style Fall color Pt 1

Oh, I'm sure you'll be doing more than dreaming, Carol, with all the wonderful plants in your garden!

Glad you liked them, DC...I'll post more as I'm able. Crassula 'Baby Necklace' is one of my favorites too!
