Tuesdays at the market are always very special. And that's because we receive a truckload full of flowers for our garden. There's always the regulars such as Peace Lilly and Zebra. Peace Lilly is a very versatile plant. It works great inside your home or outside in the shade. Another great quality of the Peace Lilly is that it doesn't need much attention. The Zebra plants require a little more hands on care, but the rewards are worth it. Zebra plants thrive in bright, filtered light, high humidity and never allowing the soil to completely dry. Here's a great video on keeping your Zebra plants alive.
And then, there's the show stoppers: Celosia and Mona Lavender. Celosias have a very bright showy color which makes them perfect for annual beds or edging in your garden. They love full sun, so they do great in our Florida weather! Mona Lavender is also a Florida Friendly Plant because it can tolerate our heat, rain and humidity. They flower year around and they work great in the garden as a bush or in a container as the "thriller".
