  1. The NZF isn’t so much a plant as a work of Art! It looks like a beautiful sculpture, fabulous colours – and so well photographed.

  2. Yes, it is a beautiful sculpture! It’s funny you should say that because the groundskeeper was going to cut them down and I stopped her. I asked her to wait and see what came next and am I glad I did. They look like dried up brown Bird of Paradise before the large ‘pods’ open up and all the blooms spring out. In full bloom it is just amazing.

    And thank you. I always like getting positive feedback! 🙂
