This is my Flame Acanthus. I caught the tail end of the first bloom, they were covered in these orange flowers, but it will bloom again this fall. The hummingbirds love this stuff, I even saw one drinking from it in the rain!
I love this combo, it is golden oregano and creeping Plumbago, that blue is to die for!
I bought two of these mini roses probably 7 or 8 years ago and gave one to my mom. This thing just barely hangs in there, never growing more than a foot tall. I guess it is healthy though, and is out there blooming in this heat. I love that orange!
