I love Bird of Paradise, such a gorgeous exotic plant. It won't grow in my area either. That purple berry plant is called BeautyBerry. It's a native plant to the east coast.


Deb we grow Strelitzia (?) Bird of Paradise. The spiky fern you showed is something that is quite prolific in our garden too. When you make it to Australia one day, I'll show you. :)


I saw a beautyberry this fall at a local nursery and immediately wanted one for my yard.


Oh...and it's supposed to be a mosquito repellent too. Another reason I need one in my yard!


The American Beautyberry grows wild here in North Florida, I wonder if your spiky plant is a Windmill Palm. Thought your blooming tree might be an Althea which is in the Hibiscus family but I can't make out the leaves....does indeed look like a hibiscus bloom though. Hope you enjoyed your stay in our state!


Bird of Paradise is an impressive flower. Being a Northerner I always enjoy seeing the subtropic flora.


The Bird of Paradise is beautiful and so are the berries! Thanks for giving us a little bit of Florida. Jean

Love that Bird of Paradise Deb - wonderful pictures. You have captured the sunny weather and the Florida flora perfectly!

Did you get the Maddy pictures I sent to you?



I have no idea what that is with the purple berries, but I love it!

Wonderful photos!
