Fertilizer Friday - coffee??

If you're into plants, you know that a lot of swapping goes on -  you share your cuttings, seeds, whole plants with others, and others return the favor.  I always like to know what things are and what they need to be happy and flourish.  Victor just likes to plant them.  He tosses the little name tags and care tags and when someone gives him something, he's hard pressed to remember what it is.  I guess you could call that unconditional love to the plant world and we must admit, he's very good at it.  If you've been following this blog, you've seen some amazing things in our yards - yards that Victor manages.

OK - so here is the official scientific name of this plant, ready?

It is more of a bush than a plant, or a tree.  It's quite lovely and very fascinating - maybe you can see more if you enlarge the photos.

Well, hope you enjoy your Friday whether fertilizer filled or not.  Sorry I can't offer you a cup of some kind of coffee : )  Peace.  B : )

So, could you harvest beans from it and make coffee out of it? That is so cool, even if you can't. How many people have their own coffee plants?

Love Victor's philosophy on gardening. Just enjoy the beauty of it and don't worry, be happy.
I like naming some of my plants for reminders of the people that gave them to me, so I can remember them.I have some that I have had for many years that were cuttings from my maternal Grandmother who died when I was 5 yrs old.
