Zebra Butterfly on the Firebush
Detail of Firebush, the flowers the butterflies like and berries the birds love to eat.
The foreground is a native Lantana bush and the tall one in the background is the Firebush. My Dad has about five of them in the backyard and they are all over 12 feet high, huge!
Pseuderanthemum laxiflorum, that I relocated in a really cool coral rock garden on the north side of my Dad's patio. Super cute plants that are very attractive in any garden. Likes pruning to keep it a dense small shrub with purple flowers all year round.
Natal Plum flowers smell super sweet like a Gardenia.
When my parents bought the house in the early 60's, this Natal Plum was one of the original plants here on the property. I think this plant is over 50 years old and by the grace of God survived Hurricane Andrew.
