(thank you to Islandgal246 for letting me know the name of this plant)
Since last week with bouts of heavy rain and scorching hot days, it started to show lots of flower buds. Then slowly they opened and the whole plant was blooming with their pretty pink flowers!Texas Sage is a desert plant, very hardy and drought resistant
The tree before it bloomed with pink flowers
a bit like bougainvillaea...without the thorns
Somebody did recognised this plant as Texas Sage. Thank you Helen (Islandgal246) for letting me know the name. I have googled it and it showed the plant in a bush form in dry conditions. It can be propagated by stem cuttings though I was told by the nursery owner, it can be propagated by stem grafting. I have not tried stem grafting yet though I would love to try it at least once to get the experience. So that's my blooms for today's Garden Bloggers' Blooming Day hosted by Carol of May Dreams Garden. Why not take a look whether there's anything blooming in her wintery cold garden. Soon spring is coming, so there must be something showing their heads there.
