Check out this stunning plant that my mother-in-law bought me!
It is called a Lion's Tail, and it is awesome! My husband came home with it the other day, and I screamed with delight when he walked up with it! His mom has one in her stunningly beautiful yard, and I fell in love with it! Apparently, it is also a hummingbird attractor, which is awesome, because Scott and I are trying to only plant hummingbird plants on our 3 acres.
There are these pom-pom like flowers on each stalk about every 6 inches.
The hummingbirds stick their little beaks in the orange part of the flower and sometimes the flower gets tuck on their beak and they fly away with them!
Here is a pom-pom that is just about to bud.
I also bought a Trumpet Flower at Aromas Day! HOPEFULLY, it is the light pink and white one. I fell in love with that color combo...
Scott went on a clearance spending spree at Sierra Azul. He bought these two salvias for a steal! The hummingbirds are already eating of of them.
Below, you can see a beautiful African Sage that I bought at Aromas Day. It is organically grown on a farm in Aromas. If you look closely, you can see that the veins of the leaves are purple! So beautiful!
This is a penstemon that we have in our front yard that the hummingbirds just love!
