OK, let’s kick off a few days of combos from Central Park’s Conservatory Garden in New York City with this stunner. I’m guessing on a few of the plant names this week, so chime in if you can ID something I can’t or if I get something wrong. This one includes a cream-edged plectranthus (Plectranthus cv., USDA Hardiness Zone 11), orange-flowered Mexican firebush (Hamelia patens, Zones 9-11), and a dark and dramatic tripocal hibiscus (Hibiscus acetosella cv., Zones 10-11). Can we say dreamy?
