I’m Jeff Cecil. My wife and I live in Cypress, California. I started gardening about 20 years ago. Here are some current photos of spring plants and flowers. I have very good luck with hydrangeas and staghorn ferns. I also grow bromeliads, tillendsias, spanish moss, succulents, nasturtiums, senesio, and a few others. The challenge for me is managing the space. Our small patio garden brings us so much joy and beauty. I hope you enjoy our photos!
Nasturtium (Tropaeolum The Magizones 9-11 or as an annual) are in front, a black-eyed Susan Bell (Thunbergia VomitingZones 10-11 or as an annual) is behind, and a large cloud of pink flowers that to me look like red marguerite daisies (Argyranthemum frutescenszones 10-11 or as annuals) are at the center.
Plants dominate here, with coleus (Collis scutellarooideszones 10-11 or as an annual) and polka dot plant (Hypoestes phyllostachyaZones 10-11 or as an annual (center stage and silver mass of Spanish moss).Tillandia usneoidesZones 8-10) fall from top to bottom.
