Ready for the weekend, OFF!

Hello everyone,
Is anyone else as excited as me to have the weekend off? It has been a long week. We will still be available for nursery visits over the weekend, just give us a call!

There will be a lot of hoyas up for auction on eBay tonight along with a few unusual tropical plants. Auctions start at 10:00pm eastern time, check us out! You can find us by our username: rareflora

We are recently new to twitter. We actually went a little crazy and made 5 different ones, lol.
Pick the one that you like (all of them? :P) and follow us. We have HoyaPlants, RarePlants1 and FragrantPlants. We also have OneFlowerADay1 where you see a new picture daily of a cool flower! We also have plan ol’ Rareflora.
Don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook: Gardino Nursery

Well I hope everyone enjoy their weekend!

ORIGIN : India, Burma
SIZE :
up to 12′
LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
: full sun to partial sun
WATER REQUIREMENTS

avoid freezing temperatures
FLOWER :
during warmer months

Unusual shrub to small tree that is suitable to grow in containers or in the ground in tropical locations. It is not a plant that likes to be trimmed back too much. Flowers are very delicate and oh so pretty. They start off pale pink and fade to white and have dark pink tiny throats. I would recommend this for someone looking for a good blooming shrub that you don’t see in everyone else’s garden.ImageImageImageImage
