For the love of Pinterest

Here is an arrangement for all of my fabulous followers who so kindly invited me to Pinterest. Thanks so much! So for you, I made this - A selection of heart-shaped leaves and petals from my greenhouse on an cold, overcast and snowy, winter day outside of Boston. 

  1. Cyclamen graecum leaf, on reverse side
  2. Clivia x Interspecific  - cross between C. miniata and C. caulescens ( three color versions shown), all from Mr. Nakamura in Japan.
  3. Hardenbergia violacea - old fashioned greenhouse vine, a winter-bloomer for cold greenhouses from Australia with brilliant blue-violet pea-like flowers in wintertime.
  4. A petal from a variegated Camellia.
  5. Muscari macrocarpum 'Golden Fragrance' - a fragrant, chartreuse Muscari, or grape hyacinth.
  6. Cyclamen hederifolium 'Silver Ghost' - a cyclamen with an all silver leaf.
  7. Westringia rosemarifolia - it looks like Rosemary, but it's not. Easy-to-train as topiary or as a clipped dome-shaped greenhouse shrub.
  8. Stenomesson piercii - a rare Equadorian bulb, with greenish-yellow bell shaped blossoms.
  9. Camellia - a rose form
  10. Cyclamen hederifolium - the ivy-leaved Cyclamen.
  11. Cyclamen graecum  (with a camellia sasanqua petal on it) two, heart shaped objects, the cyclamen leaf has a burgundy back-side, so I displayed it upside down.
  12. Camellia japnica 'Lipstick' - an anemone-flowered form.
  13. Rhododendron - Vireya 'Valentines day', a tropical rhododendron from Borneo
  14. Nerine undulata - a pink, graceful species of Nerine, a tiny bulb in the Amaryllis family, which is easier to grow than other species, and a winter-bloomer.
