Notice the little helpful green chameleon on this variegated Persian Ivy. This is a baby Iresine plant some people call the "Chicken Gizzard" plant. One sunny morning I shot this Dragon Wing begonia drooping bloom. This is a mixture of colorful coleus to brighten a very shady back corner. This is a banana flower bud and also some baby bananas (not edible).
This is a view of a border in my back yard showing my young jungle. This is a close up of my variegated tapioca plant...a favorite of mine. This is a closeup of a rare double red bougainvillea...another favorite. This is a shot of a Japanese carex called "Sparkler", which it really does. This is a shot of my yellow "Robert Young" bamboo.

This is a plant called 'Magilla perilla' which is much like a coleus. For a punch of color and whimsey, I put glass fruit in my birdbath. This tiger lily reminds me of the poem about "Tiger, tiger, burning bright" A Ti plant called "Red Sister" along with ferns after a morning rain. New Guinea impatiens after a morning rain.
This is a bed of ferns and coleus in my shade garden in Vicksburg, MS. These are coleus and Algerian ivy and ferns in my shade garden. This is one of my favorite bougainvilleas in the sun garden. This is a brugmansia called 'Charles Grimaldi'. This is a carex morrowii hanging basket under my backyard pecan tree.
