Thank you, PP. :-) I've had these plants for many years now but they have never flowered so well at this time of the year as they are doing this year.

Oh tell your wife how lucky she is waking up with such a view :o))))!!!!

Gorgeous Balcony....I do love the doubles.

Thank you ladies! :-) I'm so glad you like them! A couple of years ago I had a lovely pink one as well but it must have died one winter. They are easy to grow but it is very easy to overwater them & then they rot at the base. :-(

These are really a beautiful bunch of AV. Just loads of blossom.

Unfortunately they are not looking as good at present. :-(

They come and go, don't they. :-) They'll perk up, spring is coming.

They grow like weeds for me! I find no trouble in keeping them going year after year! I may have a few casualties but by sticking a leaf in some wayer or compost I soon have another batch of plants!

Oh yes. I meant the flowering, comes and goes. I don't allow myself to propagate them from anything other than division, I'd be overrun. :-) I do like a nice mass of them though.

I found a plant had been knocked off the windowsill yesterday, it had been put back in its place but I found 3 leaves on the floor that I could use - so they went into a glass with some water!
