Flowers and arrangements in the Garden Show 2012

This is the 4th installment post from the Philippine Horticultural Society Show 2012. First is on foliage, 2nd is Tillandsia, 3rd is bonsai.  I still have one more for the succulents and cacti. There are still the agave, but i feel like this is already very long, so i might abort it. 


 How would you like to have this arrangement in your garden? At the left are ferns arranged in a vertical stand, while at the right are bromeliads. Those ferns are just weeds growing luxuriantly during the rainy season. We have a lot of them in our area, but when arranged like that looks so inviting and special. Any plant, for that matter, gains value on how we treat them. 


How about the above. Those tillandsia mounted on a vertical mount with a basin full of flowering plants on top is a bit amusing too! When joined by many plants, colors and ornaments it makes a lovely focal point. Do you agree?

This divider stand looks like a makeshift decor.  It is made of commonly available cut bamboo internodes, the nodes kept intact and water put inside to grow those pink water plants. The alternating arrangement hanging on that stand made it a nice focal point and conversation piece too. Don't you think so?

When the plants from the hanging baskets become bigger, they can be placed on table tops overflowing with the profusely blooming dainty hanging white flowers

  1. There were so many sellers of the small white flowers? What are they called? Someone said "indian beads" but a Google search doesn't give much information.

  21. Lovely pictures Andrea. Such bright colours. I can almost feel the heat and imagine I'm there. Also that photo of the lantana tree looks exactly like the one I was unable to identify at Van Duesan gardens, in Vancouver, last summer. Now I know what it is. Thanks!

  22. Hello Andrea, all so wonderful! What an incredible show. Yes I do love the way they hang and mount the plants. Very creative and attractive. Good that you know the plants well also. With regards to Cambodia, the city of Phnom Penh is ever growing and progressing. I had a wonderful trip. I think your last trip there must have been a really memorable one as well. Yup it would be good to know the ID of that plant. Thanks in advance. Have a great day!
