Red leaves on the trees are NOT a fall option here where I live but we can still have red flowers and other red leaves! I'll show mine if you show yours! Heliconia strict 'Firebird'

Thanks! I would not be able to grow these without them being in the greenhouse. I have a bunch of red stuff, I like the color pop it brings to the foliage plants like anthuriums, palms and broad leaf tropicals. But some of the Anthuriums put out red leaves too!

Cute little Powderpuff I keep in the greenhouse. This will actually grow outside here but if it freezes in winter you have to wait for it to come back and gain any size. So using my 'Survive or Thrive' rule, I keep it in under protection

The only option for me to order it from Thailand (if it will pass local customs, I have to check the local rules, not like in US, were rules are very strict, here rules are very fluids Sighing! )

I'll do anything to keep from more unpacking......

Here is Loropetalum Red Diamond. Although this one was in a container it was too large to move so I gifted it to a good gardening buddy. It will be well cared for.
