Tomorrow I will be shipping one of my biggest orders yet from my little budding nursery out in Corralitos! I grow a beautiful plant which is a little hard to find called a Brazilian Plume Flower. Or Justicia carnea 'Huntington.' In our area, it blooms almost all year round.

Here is a photo of my original stock plant in January of 2007. Yes, January!

I found this when it was just a little scale covered twig in a six in pot on a table in the back of an old nursery up in Santa Rosa that was going out of business. The leaves were burnt and it was barely recognizable, but I knew what it was and I had been looking for one of them for many years.
Now 15 rooted cuttings are off to Arizona!
