Hibiscus & fish emulsion

A beautiful red bloom on the hibiscus, amid the beach sunflower.  I fertilized with fish emulsion last week, and this week, the hibiscus do seem to be blooming better. The fish emulsion is stinky, but it's fine stuff.
 I'm thinking a little purple queen near the wall would do well and look good.

Ti plant & bird of paradise

I love the combination of these two plants, the variegated ti plant with the bird of paradise.  Perhaps I would add some sedum to fill in a bit, but these two are a very spectacular combo. Photo taken at Tina G's house.
