Orange Bird of Paradise Strelitzia reginae Nothing says South Florida living like orange bird of paradise, a natures work of art with exquisite flowers shaped like a bird in flight - or a crested birds head on long stems resembling the graceful neck of a crane.
White Wax Begonias Wax begonias are tender perennials in Zones 8-11 but I grow them as a flower suitable for edging beds in light shade. It has waxy leaves and produces clusters of single or double white flowers. Wax begonias bloom non-stop throughout the entire season until first frost. It looks great with another annual, Purple Angelonia, as I planted here.
