Not so Yucca

  The yucca plant is another garden staple in the lower mainland of BC. I doesn’t require a lot of attention and can withstand both heat and drought. In White Rock they show up on boulevards, in flower beds and parking lots. In early spring they send up flower stalks which bloom in June with lovely white blossoms.


Late Bloomer: Cathedral Bells

This is the first time I’ve planted this lovely annual vine. It can grow as much as 25 feet in full sun and well drained soil. I’ve got mine in a large pot adjacent to a trellis that it climbed with no assistance. I took these photos over a period of four days as the first blossom appeared.
