We have grown quite a few different flowers on our small front & back patios. Most on the back patio as it gets the wonderful morning sun. Some were foliage plants that also flowered ~ Brazilian Walking irises, crossandra. mandevillas, billbergia nutans, echinopsis seminudus. Others were annuals grown from seed or seedlings, such as phlox, balsam, impatiens, double petunias & marigolds. Then there are the zygoes & the miniature roses. All have provided us with much pleasure & colour. Even right through winter. Now we have even bought a phalaenopsis orchid. Our very first orchid.
