At last a garden.

This is what most of north Florida looks like, but other things are possible.

Increasingly, growing tropicals outside over many years that reach a substantial size is becoming possible in north Florida.

Giant Amorphophallus

Big bamboo

Red Lilies

A Wall with Feeling

Blue Bottles

Live Bugs

Big Metal Bugs

Red Stems



Lily Pads

In A Pond at Kanapaha Botanical Garden.

Woohoo, that amorph would make a mighty fine leaf casting!

What fun pictures. I really like the wall. It has such personality. Those huge lily pads are always a treat.

Great pics Christopher. I've always wanted to visit the Kanapaha Gardens. They are real close to me. Maybe one day. There are some pretty parts in Fl. I think more south.

It's all gorgeous, Christopher, but watch out - the nickname for those red lilies is Hurricane Lilies.
