Mike's Blog - Day 194

A nice red Hibiscus for you today in the greenhouse by the pond. I think it belongs to a student who left it with us to look after and never came back. Not sure of its exact name, possibly Hibiscus rosa-sinensis.

The plant in front is one we grew from seed from a botanic garden in Finland. It was wrongly named when I checked it, but I’m pretty sure its “Java ginger”, Hedichium horsfeldii. I didn’t notice it flower, but its seed pods are very showy.
