Anoda cristata alba 'Snow cup' is a towering gangly annual (swipe left to see it standing 10 feet tall). I have planted it at the base of an azalea the past two years. It scrambles up through the plant and occasionally it topples and I have to take its long legs and prop it back up. Love it though. Its flowers are so clean and crisp this time of year. #bunkerfarmplants#plantlove#anodacristata
We're paying homage to East Londons undying love of all exotic botanicals. Going back to Victorian times when Hackney had Loddiges Nurseries, the largest hot houses in the world at the time!
Pflanzenliebe. Ohne Mist, seit ich mich pflanzlich ernähre, hab ich schon so viel tolles Zeug gegessen. Granatapfel im Salat mit Räuchertofu und Grillgemüse schlägt für mich einfach alles. Und die @kupferfuchs hat auch noch hübsch dekoriert 👍 💕

This shamrock (oxalis regnelli) has surprised me by staying awake all summer long.
Oxalis typically go dormant during summer months, slowly dying back as the temperate heats up. But, hot is how it feels outside. Indoors, when a lot of our homes bath in air conditioning, temperatures are actually cool enough to keep them going all-year round with adequate light.
It just goes to show that as unnatural as keeping plants indoors is, it should've been unsurprisingly that our environments triggers unnatural behaviors like this.
Trying to find an oxalis? Nurseries don't always stock these all year round so you'll find them everywhere closer to St. Patrick's day (in Toronto at least). Which is when I nabbed one.
Care Tip: oxalis like a little bit of drying out in between watering and terracotta pots help regulate this. Leaf and blooms fade more profusely than some other tropicals you may be used to, so don't be alarmed, clean up is part of regular maintenance.
And the reason this plant looks so full is because it isn't a single plant at all. There are several bulbs grouped together so feel free to double up. 🍀🍀 #FieldnotesbyStudioplants
