What is the flowering plant in the foreground in the immediately preceding photo. It resembles a Tradescantia.
I can not say , but to me looks like Tradescantia .
Very pretty flowers and everything looks very natural too. It must be summer there now? Do you get hard winters?
Here the winters are long and cold with temperatures sometimes below - 20 - 25 degrees.
We are freezing cold and this morning was minis 31 Celsius. Ponds are all running with gentle flowing water and big 1500 watt heater.
a short video from today ...
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr, my you are brave walking on the ice. Guess it is pretty thick tho. What's that little spikey plant at the start of the video? It must be pretty hardy to survive your winters. It's a neat looking plant.
Yucca . And is tested to withstand at least - 30 degrees.
Photos of the summer. Blooms in beautiful white and pink flowers .
- 31 degrees is extreme.
Oh thanks for the plant I.D. I have those. I thought it looked like it had skinnier spikes but guess it just shrinks up due to the cold so looked like a different plant. I have some of the variegated ones too.
That variegated Yucca that you have JW I think is less hardy cause I was going to get one and discovered it may not come back for me. I have that same Yucca MyGardenFlower as you. Yours looks quite good, mine is covered in snow right now, like most of my ponds are right now, even with big 1500 watt heater. Bottom pond is mostly covered in snow and has lots of snow piled on top right now.
Yep think it's only good in zones 4 - 11. Grows great here.
