The days are still hot with nights around 70° or a bit higher and the humidly chasing that up the scale. One never knows which will win that race; one only hopes it’s the AC that comes in first place. But in the garden the plants love that humidity since we’ve not had much rain.
Which constantly surprises me that the Hostos does so well. This plant likes very moist soil, almost boggy conditions and I can assure you, my borders are more akin to the Savannah. Quite a bit more toward the xeric side. They are shaded and well mulched; from what I can see makes them happy. I have heard them called all sorts of names; the one that always stood out was Funkyia. Where that comes from take a WAG. These have been in bloom for about three weeks and have about a month to go. Which is why they make nice border plants, long blooming.
