Well-known for their colourful bracts, most people would easily have missed the tiny florets of bougainvillea unless they look closely. The tiny florets are actually quite pretty.

The naughty squirrel finds the hibiscus flower buds delicious and has a good time feasting on them.

I had recently just bought a hibiscus Althea plant and I hope the squirrels don't take a liking to mine.

The squirrel returns everyday to eat the hibiscus buds/flowers. It bites the stem of the lipstick palm as well.

If your hibiscus is a short plant, it's quite safe from squirrels. My hibiscus tree is 3m tall and the squirrel only eats those flowers that are at least 1.8m above ground.

The palm civet visits our garden frequently.
This photo was taken on 10 May when I saw the palm civet climbing up our chiku tree to eat the chikus.

Drosera intermedia

Look at the "flower" stalk on the left. Flower buds didn't appear but a big plantlet was produced and that plantlet has since produced 3 flower stalks.

One tray of CPs & LSM.
There are several small shallow pots in the tray. Peat moss only 1-2cm depth (base of each pot). Live sphagnum moss which started as 0.5cm layer top dressing now 7-8cm thick.

The above sarracenia hybrid (S. x excellens) can last >5 years without dormancy. The sundews are tropical forms of D. intermedia, hence they do not require dormancy.

Bougainvillea in the garden offers green foliage year round and brilliant “blooms” in summer. Growing bougainvillea in gardens requires some effort, but many think that these tropical and subtropical woody vines are worth it. If you want more, beautiful plants evergreen shrubs.
