Stopping to smell the flowers
Driving down Blossom Street in Shandon one expects to see stately trees and evergreen shrubs like fatsia, holly, pyracantha, and sasanqua in berry and blossom. But bold tropical foliage with cheerful yellow daisy-like blossoms seemed out of place in December. Lining and parallel to the front pedestrian sidewalk of one brick home is a dense row of leopard plants, Farfugium japonicum.
