Blooming in White
Here are some of the white flowers currently blooming in Heathcote’s gardens.
The Queen Emma Lily (named for the consort of King Kamehameha IV) is a type of crinum lily, or spider lily.
The White Geiger Texas Olive tree is native to Mexico and Texas and commonly called the Texas Wild Olive. In Southern Florida it is referred to as “White Geiger.”
The Peace Lily is named for its flamboyant white blooms, which resemble flags of peace.
Delphiniums are perennials grown for their showy spikes of colorful summer flowers in gorgeous shades of blue, pink, white, and purple. Very young delphinium plants and delphinium seeds are poisonous. If ingested, they can cause nausea, twitching muscles, paralysis, and even death.
Water Jasmine is the common name for Wrightia Religiosa, the variety we use for bonsai. One of the reasons this tropical bonsai is popular throughout the world is due to its beautiful flowers which smell “as sweet as jasmine.”
