Wonderful collection of blooms! Your Costus are so lovely ... so is the Curcuma.

While I'm familiar with the purple Ruellia, I haven't seen the pink or red ones before ... very nice.

Great to see the blooms on the Aechmea and Billbergia ... and the Aloe.

you've got lots of great blooms in this summer heat. You helped me identify one of my plants...clerondendrom. Thanks. That plant was here when I moved in and I didn't know the name until now.
