Photos of plants to inspire and amuse.

Check Out My Dewy Spadix

Sadly for this guy, I don’t happen to have any Anthurium pollen sitting around.

A Hole in My Park

At some point in the last day or two, the clump of lilies disappeared, leaving only this hole in its place.

June Bloom Day

Here’s what’s in bloom in Plantgasm Gardens today.

Friends with Seeds are Friends Indeed

I love plants. People who also love plants? Turns out, they’re pretty good, too.

The Green Dragon Roars

Ofttimes really unusual plants are unusual because they’re difficult to grow, but not in this case.

Hippeastrum ‘Apple Blossom’

The forgotten Amaryllis flower in all its glory.

Colocasia esculenta ‘Elepaio’ Bloom

Colocasia esculenta ‘Elepaio’ is a small, delicate elephant ear. And today mine bloomed.

March Blooms

Spring has sprung in San Francisco. Here are a few photos of stuff that’s blooming in the back yard right now.

Elephant Ear Bloom

The smell is hard to describe. It’s somewhere between a Lilac flower and brand-new plastic.

Begonia Bloom

I’ve never had much luck with Begonias, so I consider this bloom as glorious as any orchid.
