Honey and Trumpets catch-up

Another catch-up post... I'll try not to spam the community too much as I play catch-up over the next week or so.


One of my (and the nectar eating birds) favourite plants. Grevillea Honey Gem


I'm not sure what these are, they were here when we bought the house. I have been told by someone that they are Daylilies, but they don't look like any Daylilies I've looked up on-line, so if anyone knows what they are I'd love to know.


That first plant is very cool. Something about it looks alien to me, as if it should be growing on another planet. And the possibly-not-lilies are gorgeous.
LOL Maybe not another planet, but another continent, at least.

The lily-things are lovely, aren't they? They're starting to get quite bunched, so I'm thinking about lifting them come winter and re-planting... I just hope I don't kill them, I generally have terrible success with bulbs.

ETA: Your gliders LOVE Grevillea flowers.

Eeeeeee! ::steals the picture and runs::

That makes me think, though, that there must be flowers here that it would be OK for them to eat. And though I'm not a gardener, for them I might try.
Spam away! The top plant is fascinating - and I think the lower one could well be a lily - it is not that dissimilar to some of the tree-lilies -like these but a different colour - although pink is more common.
The flowers are all beautiful, whatever they are. Just what I needed on a grey morning!
I'm with the rest of the "up-aboves" who think the Aussie flower is nifty!!!

The others might be a variety of Amaryllis. They look like ones we grow here (usually a "bulb in a box" that blooms once -- we have a hard time getting our bulbs to BLOOM much once we plant them outside, no matter what Barb does to the bulb bed!).

They look like a variety of daylillies, but I don't know which one. I'll take a look when I get a chance and see what comes in those colors and pattern.
There are zillions of kinds of daylilies, so it's a good guess that the bottom flower is one of them.

I really like the exotic look (to me!) of your first flower.
