Eye Opening Tropicals at Roma Street Parkland
I have never seen so many different Pink Anthuriums together before.



These huge pots of Impatiens floated down the watercouse



.........A tree of Broms .................................. Another Pink Anthurium



Vireya Rhododendrons



Hibiscus sabdariffa... Rosella The Fruit



..........Another Interesting Brom ...................That Prymid of Impatiens



We are going back soon as we did not have time to see everything
Six hours was not enough time with me taking photos whistle

They certainly are stunning garden, thanks for showing us, MA. I cannot pick one favourite...all of them are absolutely stunning.
I wish we had something of that class in our area.....not likely, said Fred.
Thanks MA, I look forward to more photos of the lovely gardens.

Thanks Gwen I thought I took some decent pics of the lighter coloured Vireya but when viewing them they were a little out of focus so I will try again I hope they are still blooming when we go next time .. The floating pots were great yes they do have some good ideas there.. I have tasted Rosella jam when I was young but cannot remember what its tasted like..

Thanks Fay it is a magic place with its fern gully the lake and steams and spectacle Gardens lots of lawns and children play areas, BBQ and eating areas sorry you have not got anything like that down your way..

I love vireyas but have given up ever having one. Some good ideas with those broms and impatiens. My mother used to grow Rosellas to make jam, it was her favourite jam. You can usually buy rosella seedings in most nurseries in warmer areas, not sure about down south.

Gail I nearly bought a Vireya last week in BigW $15:95 there were a few different colours there but could not choose so got none as I am too busy at present to prepare a planting spot for it and I want to find the right one.
