#1

Here's an easy one to start with. It comes in many colours, and its sepals make a nice refreshing tea.

See if you can name each of these charmers in the author's garden!

 

#2

For centuries, Caribbean people have been using this plant as an anti-inflammatory to treat ailments such as  diabetes and lung congestion. See if you can name it.

 
 

#3

This beautiful plant is so prolific, few people bother to identify it by name. It's just a plant that's not quite Jacob's Coat and not quite croton. Do you know the name?

 
 

#4

Okay, this is an easy one - it's the flowering plant that turns any yard into paradise. You must know the name.

 

#5

 This flower may be a difficult one to figure out. It's most often seen in red and yellow, the white is rare, and the orange is becoming increasingly so. What is it?

 
 

#6

This plant, with its lush foliage and flaming torch-like inflorescence, is simply beautiful. I think of the original Garden of Eden whenever this plant catches my eye.

   
 

#7

If #5 and #6 were toughies, then you're just about ready for this one. It's a tree that reflects the vivacious nature of the tropics. It comes in red, vermillion, orange and yellow, like Guyana's sunsets. What's its name . . . ?
