That's certainly got the wow factor, Louise - just been looking at your pics, do you have a preference for pink flowers?

Without realising it until about a year ago, yes i do !
It was completely unplanned and a colour that seems to draw me to all shades in the spectrum !

I have the same trouble with blue flowers, entirely unconsciously - fortunately, there aren't so many blue ones as there are pink, or that's all there'd be in my gardens!

What a horrible name for such a beautiful flower!

Queer, isn't it ?!
I think it must be to do with the breeders, they've named it their initials !

I love this group of plants, unfortunately for me so do the slugs :(

Grindle, i remember seeing a photo you posted elsewhere a year or so back and i think it was 'then' that my interest in them was started :-))

well it is no more, those slimey critters saw to that :< in fact I've lost 3 that way, until I can find a solution, I'll just have to look at yours :)

23 Oct, 2009

 

I'll be keeping a sharp eye out and make sure mine aren't eaten.
They'll be war if they are !

I had one over with my ferns, but it didn't appear this year. I suspect SNAILS!! I'm keeping a careful eye on the Tricyrtis just inside the gate - it's not a formosana, though.

it seems to be the new growth they go for, once they are growing and flowering they're safe

Saw these plants on ebay they looked unusual so as not sure about buying, might venture next year, love this one.

Dd, they're actually very easy to grow and worth your trying !
Have a look at a website by Long Acre nursery and see them there !
