Here are the photos of her garden and it gives me great pleasure to share with you the fruits of the dedication from another fellow gardening enthusiast.
To get a shady spot for her pitcher plant, Yang Mama hides this pot below her taller plants. Below the pitcher plant is a pot of plant with attractive foliage.
This is Yang Mama with her pot of unhealthy, dried-up pitcher plant.
She is trying to revive this plant and hope it will survive.
I was told that this crimson flower is used for wedding in Hong Kong. The bride would place this flower on her hair and the groom will pin it to their shirt. The leaf can be used for bathing, similar to the use of pomelo leaf by Chinese. Chinese uses pomelo leaf to bath in order to wash away bad omen/luck.
Aquatic plants such as lotus and water lily are also found in Yang Mama's garden.
Alas, they are not blooming during this visit. Usually I will find big lotus flower or purple water lily in her garden.
This shady section is where her snake plant (also known as Mother-in-laws tongue or Sansevieria) and Dracaena that boasts a beautiful yellow-beige outline. Can someone tell me name of the plant with the dark maroon, butterfly-like leaves?
A healthy pot of begonia sp. hanging beside a pot of pitcher plant at the front porch. These plants need shades to grow well. The pitcher plant was a bit dried up due to lack of water. I love the patterns and colours of the begonia plant.
