One of the interesting plants I have in my gardens is my Cup Plant. My Aunt Loreen gave it to me from her plant at her home in NJ. I love this plant for many reasons, and the fact that it came from auntie makes it all that more special.
I love how this plant is tall and strong and grows in size every year. It has a beautiful very dark green stalk with huge leaves that hold the rain in big visible water droplets.
You can see by the first picture that it blooms outside of a window. This is a smaller window in my family room.
Last year when I was so very sick and couldn’t do much more than sit in my medical recliner all day, this was the only part of my garden I was able to see. I can’t even tell you how happy this flowering Cup Plant made me. One of the many things I missed last year was playing in my beautiful gardens. I felt like these flowers were peeking in the window and smiling at me.
Welcome back, beautiful Cup Plant flowers. It’s SO nice to see you from the outside this year. ❤️
