Rain sage in full bloom

Rain SageI have several species of Texas rain sage (Leucophyllum frutescens) in my front yard. It’s a plant that only blooms when the barometric pressure is “just right”.  And they were in full glory last week.  Here are two different views.  The gorgeous red plant’s common name is Red Desert Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia pulcherrima).

  1. Here in south east Queensland, my barometric plant is the Storm Lily(Zephyranthes grandiflora) and I’m waiting the first real good thunderstorm of the season to force their blooming.
    Thanks for visitng KenMaursCorner..I was thinking along similar lines to your advice.
    I just LOVE those floral shapes


  2. You should blog more often. The only thing that blooms under barometric pressure for me is a headache. Ha!
    We get rain lilies and I haven’t seen any since the great draught. Little pink flowers on slender stems.
