Welcome to my Central Florida Garden Blog where we garden combining Florida natives, Florida-Friendly plants, and tropicals.

If gardener's dreams came true we would wish our favorite plants to reach beyond their natural bloom cycle and thrill our craving eyes all year long.
Such is not the case in the real world of flowering ornamentals or grasses.
Muhlenbergia capillaris Muhly grass would top my list for extended bloom time if a wish could make it happen.
Newly faded fountains of amber inflorescences garner my praises even as they fade from that remarkable pinky-purple shade we've admired all autumn.
This grass is truly a beauty in every stage and one I highly recommend for autumn impact.
Do you have a favorite autumn bloomer you wish would keep right on performing past the Creator's time table?
