More vireya grown from seed and growing on trees.

Aloha Gardeners,

I had a couple of beauties blooming this week that I wanted to share with you.

I spotted this lovely flower poking out from behind a cluster of vireya seedlings growing at the base of a palm along my driveway.  She has enchanted me like a garden fairy. 

The second is a seedling who has bloomed before but was really a sight to see this time.  Unfortunately rainy weather kept me from photographing all the trusses open at once.  However, I climbed a ladder to make sure that I would get a good photo of the last open trusses before it finished.  In the full photo you can see that the plant is growing in a mass of moss on the side of the tree about 10-12 feet above the ground.  It is a very pretty lemon yellow with bright clear color.

The flowers up close.....

And, the plant attached to the tree.

Way cool!

I wonder what's blooming today?

Aloha until next time,
