Their fruit trees are Orange, Grapefruit and lemon and some blueberry bushes she harvested one cup full! Lastly, an unusual plant she calls her “stinky” plant (Starfish or Stapelia) because of its odor, but it has very large beautiful star shape flowers that measures 12 inches across from tip to tip. All around this landscape has curb appeal with its many colors to enjoy!
