Clearly we all love us some orchids but what other flowers (or noon-flowering plants) do you enjoy?

i have a few others i like and grow- I love desert roses and have a bunch of varieties of colors and double and triple petal plants.

Rhododendron atlanticum, growing in a drier section of my bog. The fragrance is by far my favorite of any native, second only to Cattleya nobilior among tropicals:

Nice 'other' plants! That coral honeysuckle is spectacular.

Unfortunately I live in an apartment, so it's not easy to grow my favorite non orchids. I really like Hemerocallis since doing an internship at a specialist nursery in my first year of college, and planted several in my mother's garden (no photos).

Now some of my other favorites which I have in pots on our balcony since last year are Agapanthus. I discovered them 4-5 years ago while visiting my boyfriend's family in coastal Brittany and fell in love. I don't have photos of mine since they only made a few flowers in their first year, but this is a photo I took in Brittany.

A couple that catch my eye every year, that have been established in the backyard for many years (some type of Iris, a hardy water lily, an Amaryllis 'Clown', and Azaleas).







Have always had a weakness for Tillandsia ionantha

Here are a few I have in bloom right now...
The first are blooms from my Ponderosa 'lemon' which smell fantastic. The second picture shows one of my jasmine sambac's (not sure which variety as I lost the tag). The third are blooms that I accidentally knocked off of my jasmine sambac 'Maid of Orleans'. Last is the Pom tree 'Nana.' These are all plants that bloom year-round for me.

The other houseplants (besides the orchids) are varieties of citrus, some air plants, a Theobroma cacao, a Cinnamon verum tree, a Camellia 'tea' plant, a Sapodilla 'Alano' (a random buy...never have eaten the fruit), two varieties of coffee arabica, String of pearls, two little fig 'Petite Negra' trees, a plumeria, Cestrum nocturnum, three varieties of Passiflora (incarnata and two edulis), two types of banana (an unknown variegated and a ‘Super Dwarf Cavendish’, (neither of which will probably ever give me bananas), a Neem tree, an unknown Pinguicula for gnat control, an avocado tree from seed in a pot with calla lilies, a lavender and an aloe plant. I actually had more plants at one time but I have pared down the collection (jungle) to make it more manageable. There are so many fascinating plants to grow but I have come to realize that I cannot grow everything.

I really enjoyed all the pictures but, I admit, I especially liked the pictures showing a few varieties of Tillandsia.

I should really take more pictures of the various flowers I grow but I usually procrastinate....

Whoa leaf mite you are speaking my language!!!

I am a huge fan of tropicals and fruit trees. I have a small plot of about five dwarf cavendish right now and they are so delicious! The super dwarf is trickier bc they don’t have as much stored energy? Is it potted or in the ground?

I have two avocados, a Florida hass and a brogdon, a Florida peach tree, lychee I forget which kind but delicious, a bunch of pineapple bushes, a Kari carambola (starfruit), jaboticaba, a break of purple sugar cane, a huge mulberry tree, a red mango, a few blackberry vines (no fruit, ever), and some various Passion flower vines

I also have a young coconut tree that’s probably five years from fruit, a nice Barbados cherry bush that the damn rats pick clean before I can ever get a fruit. (My house touches 6 other properties and 1 is a D bag, 5 are amazing....guess who I share the longes border with?? )

I have a small herb garden too but I am not good at herbs for some reason. They either get leggy and flower and become bitter or they die. Oh, and I have a red ginger, a few turmeric a sweet potatoe, all my roots and tubers lol

I live here in Ohio so all my tropicals live in pots. They spend the summers outside and come inside for the colder months.

Plants are really my hobby. For a time, I really did try to grow everything but I think I now have a really good collection that brings me joy. Every night, I go to sleep with the fragrance of jasmine...what could be better?
