Another special one,Andrew? tell us more about it,please!

A shrub from South America, requiring a light well-drained soil, in full sun and shelter. Reaches six feet in height, slightly wider.
I planted mine in the autumn of 2006, but it hasn't really got going until this year. It looked a bit sorry for itself after the winter before last but recovered fairly quickly.

Looking good, I'm surprized it's done so well this summer you must have had more sun than us!!! :-)

PH - not sure why it's done so well, certainly not the sun. It has put on lots of growth so it must be the moisture it likes

Thanks,Andrew! Seems to like specific conditions.A beauty though!

Oh my word! Incredible!

Please help! Do you know what type of shrub it is - so I know which category to nominate it for?

Ta.

Rose - it's an evergreen shrub for full sun. Does that help?

16 Jul, 2012

 

Ah - thanks. Have nominated under evergreen shrubs. Although I notice it comes up 'already featured' under 'flowering shrubs,' so presumably someone's beaten me to it?

No surprise there!

A beauty. Looks like a cross between a clematis flower and a bottlebrush flower.
