I have this Hibiscus since twenty years in my garden. Unfortunately it must compete with two massive Palms and a Lukasi Cypress. Before summer I had cut it back and it has not been as floriferous as usual. So it seems it is making a comeback into autumn. It is a very beautiful, subtle colour, a tiny red eye and flouncy petals.

Caryota is a genus of palm trees. They are often known as fishtail palms because of the shape of their leaves. There are about 13 species native to Asia and the South Pacific. One of the more widely known species is Caryota urens, which yields sap used to make an unrefined sugar called jaggery, and also to make palm wine.
Autumn brings the seasonal Chrysanthemums. These are hardy and reappear like clockwork as soon as the temperatures drop. I love these simple, pretty flowers.
