Masha-Allah. Very good collection and very well maintained. I am confused to choose a few to praise, all are beautiful.
Good luck and looking forward for your regular updates. :)

Hamad, a great job.
Tuberous begonia...
Tell us more about this plant, since when you have it? Is it perennial or you buy it every year if so from where?

Tecoma capensis..
A climber or a shrub? what is the age of this one? source?

Ruellia..

Image

After experience of the pink one I have it on my choice list. I highly recommend it to all level gardeners.

White bauhinia..
Is it some different variety? our local white normally blooms by the end of Feb.

Calliandra
A very nice shrub I have three different kinds, each flowers at a different time,
Ones I like the most

Image

Image

Calla lily recently bought ...
I love them, they are so pretty.
I hate them, could not keep them alive.
lycoris
Why don't they bloom with me. tell me the trick to get them to bloom.
pentapetes phoenicea
Simply LOVELY, tell us more about it. Where to get seeds and when to plant?
passiflora scarlet flame..
I am developing a passion for them, hope to collect some more.

I love the white bauhinia, it is different than normal bauhinia and flowers at short height.

thanks farah ,rafique,brig sb and khabab bhai for kind words....i appreciate your feed back... :D :mrgreen:
@khabab bhai this bauhinia is different from common pink bauhinia.it blooms almost 8 months in summers.and produces seeds also...
@ brig sb a lot of questions in single post i am confused.... :o :lol:
tuberous begonia i got two small seedlings of 1 inch from babu nursery on 3 October worth rs 50 each...and now one is blooming...i come to know that now they are selling mature plants in Islamabad for 800 each..

tecoma capensis is a small shrub grows 3 feet high and very invasive because every branch with touches earth start rooting there and also grows with root suckers..my plant after one year is now spread in 8 feet area...not recommended for small area..blooms just one time in fall.it is commonly available..
lycoris is very simple for me.but problem is few bulbs bloom and few remain dormant.reason unknown.i have around 30 bulbs collected from different sources.got 10 more from chanan din for rs 20 each.he is selling these as red nerine. perhaps he still have bulbs.

pentapetes phoenicea is very beautiful plant...it is summer annual and grows 5 feet tall in ground and 3 feet in pot.i sowed seeds in march and these bloomed in august ,September.ii have collected seeds of this plant will share with members who want this beautiful plant.....very heat resistant

Such a lovely collection.....

Tuberous Begonia ... once i had it but summers killed it ...... looking forward to have a regular update on it.

Callas ... another of my favourite ... lets see how it will behave next year ... mine is 1 year old now ....sprouting again these days ......

Copying the same question of BRIG Sb. " Lycoris never bloomed for me as well" its been three years now.
