HOT medinilla is doing quite well in my garden. All my guests noticed it and compliments it (not many know of this plant here). I absolutely love the gorgeous hanging pink flowers! They look good, even if they are still buds.
It's like a pink chandelier. The opposite foliage is neat and attractive too.
And they remind me of grapes and oil palms!
The coleus are being LOUD with their striking foliage. The red among the greens screams for attention! They really stand out from those dieffenbachias.
Even the tiny purple flowers are cute!
Some grow like weeds in my garden. Some are even weeds in my garden! They just pop out of the ground!
Coleus are known as hati-hati by nurseries here. Hati means liver scientifically in Malay, but also means heart when used....romantically?
Some are so maroon!
However, the orchids are being PROUD as usual. The various shapes, sizes and colours of orchids makes them so unique and exotic. No wonder they are valued by collectors.
Although I love orchids, I can only get the common varieties since my father despises them!
I once saw a Lady's Slipper Orchid on sale in Cameron Highlands, but it was RM 100+.
I'm still loving these dendrobiums though!
