a shady place in our garden
This is a favourite area of our garden, with a variety of bromeliads, (frogs love them) cordylines and a few native orchids. On the fence we have a number of elkhorns and in the hanging baskets there are a variety of miniature hoyas. We've become more interested in hoyas since an original one that we planted had flowered beautifully this spring/summer. There is a variety of hoyas available, they have exquisite flower heads, some strongly scented. It's lovely to walk through this corner on a summers afternoon when it's bathed in 50% sunlight pleasantly dappled by the overhead trees.
