Selection Of The Month: The Garden Club Of Palm Coast’s monthly garden by Nancy Iandoli

Deborah and John Sewell of Cochise Ct. have been recognized as April 2023, Selection of the Month by The Garden Club at Palm Coast. Originally from Utah, they moved to Palm Coast in 2015 to get away from snow.
They have created their colorful landscape with many bromelads, starting with only two, and now they are climbing and multiplying on their Queen palm tree. They are grateful for the generosity of their friends and neighbors for sharing their plants.
Their most prominent variety of bromeliads is the common Neoregelia Martin, which produces a large number of pups (babies). Given a lot of sun they will become a beautiful red/pink.
They also have several bird of paradise blooming throughout their landscape. The one near the front door entrance is well sheltered from frost and cold winds and blooms year-round.
In the back patio area facing the canal they have much diversity of plants such as: blooming cactus, bright pink crown of thorns in a multi-color ceramic boot , Flaming Katy orange kalanchoe, calla lily, several jade plants, snake plants, a dracaena (corn plant), variegated philodendron, a beautiful wooden fish driftwood with air plants attached, pink amaryllis, other varieties of bromeliads, orchids, a stunning Alocasia Polly (elephant ears) and even a money tree (Pachira aquatica. And it all started with just 2 bromeliads. Nice job, Sewell family.
