  1. They are such a big exotic flower. This is a lovely bunch of them. I love watching the birds sit on them and eat.

  8. Wonderful burnished colours on these magnificent blooms .... I'm sure they brighten up the street-scape.

  9. We certainly do have some weird and wonderful flora, such a good idea to use this as street planting because it's so hardy.
