Cycads are among my favorite garden structures with their stiff fronds.
The purples of summer: Persian Shield above and Purple Heart below.
If you look closely, you can see a String Lily Crinum bud.
I had forgotten moving that Crinum last year.
I am very fond of Purple Heart. It returns from winter death.
It roots easily. In the ground it spreads; in a pot it grows downward.
Another plant that returned from Winter Death.
I am waiting for this cane begonia to decide whether to bloom.
