As I Wander...

Living in tropical Malaysia, we tend to take the hot humid weather, thundery rainstorms and the spectrum of wild evergreen plants as a given.

Recently, I noticed more exotic plants making its way into landscaped home gardens, recreational parks, frontages of shopping malls and
commercial buildings.

Along kerb sides of residential streets and busy motorways, palms, trees and flowering plants make pleasant and interesting fringes.

This is a record of the various species "as I see it" for I am in awe of palms. Hence, my premise for this blog is that the global garden,
i.e. every physical garden (tended or untended), becomes a part of my, simply said, cyber palm garden. ;-)

The Ornamental Red Banana

Botanical Name : Musa laterita

Sometimes, I feel the Secret Garden should be renamed the Enchanted Garden.  For me, it's full of surprises as each time I make the trip, I get to see something new, like I'd somehow not noticed before, suddenly appearing in front of my eyes.

New specimens that I'd missed, changes to existing plants since my last trip to the rooftop garden which now needs updating.  Phew... some interesting bits to add.

Never thought, a single picture could tell this whole story.  Perhaps, I need not try...
This little bloomer is all of 2ft tall and it's flowering and fruiting... hands down for one of the world's SMALLEST banana!

The upright inflorescence has unveiled its first comb of yellow flowers.

no kidding
