Early summer downunder:  Jacobinia carnea syn. Justicia carnea (Justicia carnea (Paradise Plant))

Sometimes called the Brazilian Plume Flower, this is great plant for a warm position in a tropical garden. You can also see Euphorbia hybrid 'Diamond Frost' planted with the Jacobinia ... it gets these lovely tiny white butterfly-shaped flowers all year round.

Agree with everyone - I love white in the garden and these two just go so well together. Bjs - yes there are various shades of pink, red, yellow, orange or white flowers ... this is the cultivar 'Alba' with the white flowers.

Lol ... Marguerite ... my favourite nursery keeps putting out lots of different plants for sale these days! Townsville's never been one for keeping up with trends in plant releases ... but that's slowly changing as more of us are taking an interest in what we're planting! I'm keen to try and find out just how many of these great plants will survive in my garden.
