Okay, T. cyanea has bracts. The blooms are tiny and blue and stick out of those bracts, soon.
The white Justicia is just bracts now, the tiny pink flowers have dried. It will commence bloom again as the days get shorter. There is plenty of lush foliage.
Pink Pentas, 'Miss Julie's Favorite'
The first time I did that, a squirrel destroyed my plant when I put it outside. I have two small cycads in the greenhouse that took a long time to grow. I think they were from year before last and now they're just small plants. Supposedly Cycads only bloom every 4 years or so. This one loves to produce more often. I feel compelled to save some seeds every time.
Seeds are what blooms are about. I failed to plant Zinnias this summer, the only thing that I miss.
Happy Bloom Day. Do visit Carol at May Dreams Garden, leave a comment, link your blog with August Blooms and go see blossoms all over the world through her links.
