Orange Hibiscus. These plants respond amazingly well to organic fertilizers and organic pest control.
Hydrangeas grow exceptionally well in Lakeside when provided just the right mix of sun, cool shade and water.

Yellow Trumpet Flower (Brugmansia) in front of wisteria
Our subtropical Lakeside climate allows us to grow some beautiful tropical plants. Fuchsias, shown here, originated in the Caribbean and enjoy a partial shade, partial sun place in the garden.
Honeybees, green metallic bees, blue jays and local parrot populations all enjoy our tall and colorful sunflowers.
Stargazer lilies, such as the one shown here, grow from bulbs on tall 3-4 foot stalks with multiple blooms. They make an excellent cut flower that lasts a relatively long time and fills a room with a sweet, fresh fragrance.
Red Hibiscus Flower. An edible flower, the hibiscus is native to many subtropical and tropical regions. Hibiscus tea is common in many areas of the world. .

Each year the wisteria blooms, we are visited by beautiful carpenter bees. This is absolutely their favorite flower during spring.
Dinner Plate dahlias really live up to their name in our Lakeside gardens. This yellow bloom is being compared to a true dinner-sized plate.
Another beautiful eight-inch bloom on a hibiscus bush that does so well in Lakeside. Just remember, if you want to eat them, you can’t treat them with pesticides
Yellow Hisbiscus. Big, bright blooms are beautiful in bouquets but they don’t last long. They do, however, make lovely show pieces in your yard.
