This is my santa rosa plum that I have grafted many European plums to it. Notice the different size and shape of flowers? It is because they are different cultivars. Imagine I just grafted them last summer. Some are over 3 feet long.

This is really my first deciduous fruit bloomer, aside from lemons and Calamondins. The Myrobalan Plum. It bloomed around Crhistmas time. Has nice fruits now.

snowdrops and crocus are starting to come up. Daffodils coming up too, but not blooming.
Oh, and it's snowing right now. Indiana sucks sometimes!

Yucca elephantipes (white and amazingly fragrant)
Cannas (bright neon orange)
Callas (white)
Sempervivae (yellow)
Roses of many descriptions
One of my dwarf cavendish bananas
A barrel palm
Three different types of hibiscus
Aloe arborescens
Some african lilies and african daisies
Dandelions - there's no escape! they followed me here!
The fig tree
St. John's Wort
An ice plant of some sort.

It's pretty neat to be somewhere that constant bloom is possible.

Lorax, the map shows you are near Pichincha Peru. Is that correct?

Yeeks, no. I'm in Quito Ecuador, which is Pichincha province, but definitely not Peru.

I miss my Loja garden, which was in the south.

Edit - the map should be closer to accurate now.

This is my latest bloomer White Nectarine.

Happy Easter. And here's what's blooming
Multi-Grafted Cherry grown in pots. Yes, cherry can be grown in pots and they can be productive too! Gisela 5 is the rootstock. I'll be assembling one multi-graft on Krymsk 5 rootstock and observe how they perform in pots. My 24-n-1 Cherry Tree is in various stages of bloom at the moment. It is 28 ft tall and I let it be, due to my neighbor's Redwood Tree.

Happy Easter. And here's what's blooming.

Assorted Multigrafted Apples. Apples have diffent colored flowers too, not only their fruits. I have red fleshed and pink fleshed apples, as well as assortment of skin colors. I lost track on how many apples I've got. But if it is fireblight tolerant and tastes good for the inland Valley growing, most likely I've got them grafted already:

Happy Easter. And here's what's blooming

A collection of pomes in one tree. The Pome fruits includes Quinces, Apples, Asian Pears, European Pears, Asian x European Pear hybrids, Hawthorns, Loquats, Medlars, and others. The quinces are blooming and some apples are starting to open up. The pears are well on their way to fruit filling, very few petals left to drop.

I have 7 types of quinces on this tree. It also has 7 types of apples, 1 crabapple, 4 Types of Asian Pears, 6 European Pears and 2 Asian x European Pear hybrid all on the same tree. I used to have a hawthorn and loquat on this tree but they died, long term incompatibility problem, but I will find a more suitable interstem later to make them long lasting. Already I have grafted some good candidate interstems unto it and should be ready next year.

Note that the new grafts are already pushing out and some are even blooming already.

Alpinia zerumbet, aka shell ginger. It rained, so we get flowers for all of about 48 hours on the canes. They smell fantastic, even though they're short-lived.

my tulips look like their fixing to bust open(early spring variety), all of my muscari has bloomed, i have hycinths opening and my ornamental plum has buds all over it. my weeping cherry tree looks like it might bloom before the end of next week, and my climbing roses have lots of nice leaves. my peony's are getting tall, my bee-balm is spreading like wild fire, and my iris' are getting tall and the leaves are looking great. found baby leaves on my purple cone flower, and my white and pink dogwoods are finally opening their leaves.when my dogwoods are in full bloom i will plant my tomatoes and strawberries outside. my solomons seal is finally popping their heads up( i really love that plant) and my pop-ups are about 1 ft. tall. need to cut the grass but till the flowers start to bloom im not cause of the honey bees. oh and i have lots of dandylions in bloom.LOL! they are staying in the yard also because of the honey bees.im not thrilled with having the dandylions in the yard but the bees are. so they stay.
