Flowers in the Japanese Garden

 There were no cherry or plum blossoms in our Japanese Garden. The landscape and the structures can be imitated. Nature is just what occurs naturally and so we have trees more suitable to our tropical climate to grace the garden.

 Tabebuia rosea (Rosy trumpet tree)

Bottlebrush tree flowers.
Lotuses in bloom.

Kopsia fruticosa.

Leea Rubra.


  1. I spent some time in Singapore last summer and I fell in love with the flowers there. My husband owns a commercial building in Florida that needs to be landscaped again. I've talked him into adding flowers from Singapore. I can't wait to see those Kopsia Fruticosa in his flower beds!

  2. Wow I love all of this! Thank you so much for sharing.

    we use Ixoras all the time.
