...insert obscure reference here...
We suspected there were 'buds' a week or two ago, now we have confirmation! I am going to be SO POPULAR with the honeyeaters now! TeheheheheFeeling moderately better, and hoping to visit all my blog buddies later this morning - CHEERS!
Beautiful. It looks just like Agave. We have many of those in our garden. Very robust and very suitable to our dry climate here in Adelaide.
I can't wait to see the monster flowers on this one. You'll need a wide angle just fit it all in.
I'm pleased you are feeling better Lavender! Will also watch out for the bloom of your Gymea Lily :)
Colin Now that you mention it, it does! This will be the first flowering for us, theyve only be in about 8 years! LOL Ah well, good things come to those that wait??Barkfoot A wide angle and a very tall ladder! Still, Im really excited to see one up close and personal - and take my lens as close as I can to share it :)Anon Eight years of waiting for this! Tehehe Im so looking forward to it - and seeing the birds enjoy it! Every day in every way Im gettting better and better Hehehehe(Ta, Anon!)
What colors are the blooms? I have to agree with Colin it does resemble an Agave which we have plenty of. Have you ever heard of a plant that sort of looks like this called The Pride of Madeira?Also love your previous posts that I missed.
Sharon Pride of Madeira and a relative Tower of Jewels - oh gosh yes! Ive wanted to grow them for ages, but finding seed here hard to come by - Now if I could plant those, and get them to grow alongside this - thats a display that would stop traffic!! LOLThis blooms red - and the flower stalks can reach to 20 feet tall (6 meters) altho I think they average a bit shorter....looking forward to seeing how tall this one gets!Thanks Sharon! :)
Guess what movie I'm watching tonight Lavender? ARGGGGHHHHHH};-}
It seems you always have your camera at the ready!
Anon ARRRRR - Hoist the colours!! :)Captain LOL I really need one 'installed' on my person - would save me alot of time running to get it :)
Lovely leaves and I like that it looks like one of my favorite fruits - pineapple.
Ces Yes! I can see the pineapple-ness in this - nice interpretation there Ces!! :)
