Green Thumb Sunday


I was admiring the front beds in the Display Gardens at Rutgers Gardens when I noticed that one of the banana trees had bananas. I whisked out my camera and took a picture. I didn’t realize until I got home and uploaded the picture to my computer that it looked almost exactly like:

Audrey II (“Little Shop of Horrors”)

Oh dear! You half expecting a

Perhaps Rutger Gardens should check if they loose employees to an abnormal rate.

What an unusual and interesting looking plant.

My banana makes leafy growth but we get too much winter weather here for fruit. OldRoses, seeing your 'Audrey' photo makes me not mind that so much! That plant would totally dominate a small garden, wouldn't it?

Rosengeranium, aha! Maybe that's why there are different student interns every year.
