|I think this could be Pandanus tectorius, AKA "screw pine" although it |
looks nothing like a pine or a screw! Several of these small trees were planted on the grounds of the resort where we stayed. The fruit is about eight inches in diameter.
|Hibiscus everywhere in every color imaginable.|
|Codiaeum variegatum AKA "croton" - The sap from these plants can be toxic,|
but they sure are striking. They formed a hedge along one side of our home in Miami. It was fun to see familiar (and unfamiliar) tropical plants.
|I haven't been able to identify this plant. Some kind of lily?|
|It's obvious where the Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia reginae) got its name.|
This is the only one I saw in bloom during our trip.
