my backyard nature

its all about nature!


Orchids

I have 2 moth orchids which is the most common type of orchid & is also called the Phalaenopsis orchids. One is purple & the other is pinkish orange in color! They bloomed around the same time(just like my lily & pickerel rush (from another post of mine)) but they are really different in size! Purple moth orchid just had another bloom a month ago & from the same stem but about half way through started this new stem & the current one started growing out.

Texas Lantana

IMG_1910

I love this plant & its flower, the Texas Lantana. It is considered a pesky weed by some folks; Its a true testimony to the plant’s nearly indestructible traits. Texas Lantana blooms with masses of orange/yellow flowers that seem endless. The plant is drought tolerant, disease and pest resistant and thrives. It is a perfect choice for a low maintenance informal and wild flowerbeds although it works well in more formal arrangements. Xeriscape ready, provide Texas Lantana with ample space because it will get quite big.
