What's blooming in your palm grove?

What is giving you color in the palm grotto now that it's mid September. For me it's Butterfly Bush (Buddleia), Crape Myrtles (reds, pinks, magentas and purples), roses, marigolds, Lavender Asters, Yellow coreopsis, Purple clemantis, Magnolia virginiana, and M. grandiflora 'Little Gem.

Right now my Cardinal vine, Brugmansia, Gardenia "Frost Proof" Orchid, Desert Rose, Bougainvillea, hibiscus, Lantana, and Cannas, (and a few others like Portucalas and of course my Plumerias!) are all adding some color to the yard. The bougainvillea is adding the most color though since its in the middle of the yard and is covered with as many blooms as it possibly could be!

RE: What's blooming in your palm grove?

Most of my summer dormant plants are, well, dormant lol. But some others sun loving, heat loving plants are blooming nicely. My California Fuchsias are in their prime right now, blooming their hearts out. Also the aptenia cordifolia, callistemon and my bougainvilleas are blooming like crazy! I love those royal purple masses of blooms! Erythrina Crista Galli and the echeverias as well as tibouchina urvilleana.
