Dumbcane Collection - Side View

My garden is constantly evolving. Most likely they tend to grow & trail in places I cannot imagine but somehow it is predictable that my garden slowly turning forest often happens with the 3 months time.

Again, I was not able to co-pe with my mood to garden and the constant unpredictable climate of rain & shine somehow brought me to procrastinate gardening (that explains my long-due silence in the blog-roll)

Nevertheless, I would like to share the small little beauties that blossoms time to time in my garden. Small little things that brighten my day.

These are Zebra Tradescantia - I had found another different species. (My favourite one)
where they seemed to glow a shimmering violet shade.

Black Flamingo seemed to be able to put a stand of a constant bloom for months.
And they really compliment each other very well.

Together in this collection is Chinese Evergreen (Aglaomena sp.),  Goosefoot plant (Syngonium podophyllum)  & Dumbcane.

I really want to make the emphasise of the variety of colours here rather than just plan green factor. Somehow Dumbcane plant is easiest to maintain as they hardy and able to tolerant both the hot & rainy climate interchangeable well.

I still have to prune and reset this area here as some of the plant had totally gone hidden as the top growth had cast a shade & overgrowth over them and most likely those that survived had become leggy and un-noticeable. 

Really hope I can manage this space again and continue to admire them.
