Flowers Around the "Water"

 

Yesterday I presented the second piece of the current art exhibit at the Desert Botanical Garden.  Today I have some close-up shots of the some of the beautiful plants that are part of the "Water" exhibit.  

Mixed in the with the agaves that naturally grow here are petunias and bromeliads in a variety of bright colors.  They look great mixed in with the desert plants.

They look so good in this spot that I wish they could stay.  However, they are a bit too tropical for our very dry climate.  I don't think they would last very long.  Which makes me curious as to what type of watering mechanism they are using to keep these plants happy while this display is up.

I can smell the flowers, through these images, delightful. And Yes, lots of direct drip irrigation would be my bet on how.

Some of those petunias look a little wilted, actually! The bromeliads even look like the agaves, but yeah, they definitely prefer more humidity.

They are very tropical. I am use to seeing these when I lived in Houston. Beautiful colors.

Gosh! I looked for some spring-like colors today and couldn't find any. Too early here.

Looks so pretty Sharon, maybe with the right reticulation plan they could last a while 🌼
