Welcome to Floridata!
A warm front moved through the Cincinnati area bringing bright, balmy, breezy weather. The pollen level has dropped from Very High to Moderate so I can get back in the garden - were I harvested my first radishes and arugula of the season. Delicious! This week I'm going to plant tomatoes and some new perennials we plan to profile later in the year. Make the most of this merry month of May and be good and grow! ~ Jack May 16, 2013

This lacecap type bigleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla.) is a member of the 'Everlasting Summer' collection. The hydrangeas will be blooming soon here in Kentucky. The nice thing about the 'Everlasting' varieties is that they continue to have bursts of bloom throughout the season rather than just in spring.

Flowering Plants of Hawaii
This is the final posting of the Flowering Plants of Hawaii series. We thank Bruce for allowing Floridata to publish this extensive survey of flowering plant species found in the Hawaiian Islands. Bruce will be be updating this series periodically and the pages will be enhanced and re-formatted when we launch Floridata v.3 (sometime in May I hope!).

There is a pawpaw (Asimina triloba) tree growing at the edge of a pond on the path where I walk my dog every day. It's in full bloom now and covered with small bell-shaped flowers that hang straight down from the branches.
I took this "ant's eye" view of one of the blossoms. They are small and leathery and kind of weird but very beautiful and very interesting. The ones that manage to mature into fruit will be very delicious. Visit the Pawpaw Wallpaper Gallery to download these and other images in large format (800x600px) and read the Pawpaw Profile here.
