Wax Flower

I got this Wax Flower plant many....many moons ago at Descanso Gardens in La Canada. I had it in the direct sun, as they had done at the gardens, but it seemed very angry. I put it in the shade and it didn't like that either. All of it's color faded away and it turned a very light green, so sad. I put it on our front patio and it seems pretty happy now. It has grown about three feet and has these lovely blooms that hang from the bottom. I don't know the lesson here but I try to watch the sun when I first move in a new place and see which plants like/hate the sun, etc. I hope to see some of the bright green color comes back into the leaves...we will see.

I missed the boat on this one but it's such a good picture I wanted to post it. This Wisteria picture was taken at Lacy Park in San Marino CA. Wisteria is an early Spring blooming vine named after Casper Wister after it's discovery in 1818. Enjoy!
