Gotta love the random morning surprise of a flame thrower showing off its stuff.

I've got about 30 in the ground, and the splendor never fails to make me happy!

Yeah you can never have too many Chambeyronias! I wish I had planted 30 ten years ago!

Chambeyronias  is a must have and yours looks great So is that costus barbatus AKA spiral Ginger you have on the right. These add a great topical touch to any Palm Garden plus the yellow flowers are edible.

Soon, in geological terms, Southern California will be awash in "California Grown" Chamadoreas, as well as Zacky Farms chickens.

Having a lot increases the odds of multiple flames, especially in the winter. I've had up to nine at once!

Yes they are!  I remember having to get mine from Clark in Encinitas 10yrs ago (that is not how old this clump is, but it is a division from my original batch).  About 5 yrs ago they made their way into Santa Barbara at most nurseries, which was awesome to see.  Everyone that walks by comments on the Costus.   Hers is a better pic!

Those look great I take my spent flower staulks and cut them into 8 to 10 inch pieces and shove them into a community pot and almost all of them Sprout super easy and fun to propagate.
