These batch will include the lovely tropical, exotic plants that I saw during our recent trip to Quezon. I fell in love with that place the first time I saw it. Nothing fancy, but I just love the greenery unlike here in the Metro. It’s like a tropical rain forest, that’s why there are a lot of beautiful plants. When you’re close to nature, the feeling of serenity is there and we, Manilenyos need that every so often.
Here are some of the gorgeous flowers and plants I saw growing there.
156/365 Anthurium or “Flamingo Flower”
157/365 Bromeliad – a very common tropical plant. There are a lot of varieties of Bromeliad and this is just one of them.
158/365 Blue Hydrangea – I love these flowers, too bad I can’t grow it here in the Metro. Even though you can see hydrangea being grown in our country, these lovely ornamental plant thrives in cooler climate. If you’ll notice, we have a lot of them in Baguio and Tagaytay. Quezon being at the foot of the mountain has a cooler climate also compared in the City. These flowers have become a favorite for wedding bouquets and arrangements because of its soft, delicate look.
159/365 This another kind of a very lovely exotic flower. If I am not mistaken, this is called a Red Ginger. If anyone knows the real name of this plant, please let me know by leaving a comment.
160/365 I never really know what this fruit is and upon searching, I discovered that it is called the NippleFruit. This is commonly used as an ornament for exotic flower arrangements. It is realted to the tomato and potato family. However, this fruit is poisonous if ingested.
