I like that Spritz, did you just get the one ?
What will you plant with it ?

Love those I have got a few!

I've only recently seen them Michaella, you're ahead of the game ;-))

Yes, just the one - and I haven't really decided yet - but it has white flowers, so it will probably go in the back garden.

Its yummy...I have the black one....didn't know there were others :))

Nor did I, Alice - but this Nursery had other species too - O. jaburan. It wasn't variegated, though.

If it has the same habit as the black one, you'll soon have more than one spritz

Good! I do hope so, Andrew. Not as commonly available as the black one, is it?

12 Dec, 2009

 

No - and have you seen the price of the black one? I'm knee deep in them!

12 Dec, 2009

 

I managed to find some at £3.99 each recently! Or £3.45 if I bought three.....:-))) This one only cost £3.50. I should have bought more. :-(((

the black one grows easily from its own berries spritz. I grew several a few years ago.

Sadly, the berries are long gone, Sbg. I shall have a try next year - and with this one, too. I shall split this plant - it seems to have several 'plantlets'.

I'd like to compare your planiscapus 'Little Tabby' with my planiscapus/japonicus 'Silver Dragon' (blog - early December at Foxhollow garden part 2). if you can spare a plant-let Barbara, I'll send you a plant of 'Silver Dragon' by return...then we can both compare ?

13 Dec, 2009

 

I'll have a go at splitting it, BS. Why not? Good thinking! :-))

I had a black one and it died! I think the roots were rotten when I bought it - that's what happens when you don't pay attention. :-( Then I was weeding elsewhere in the garden and found a baby one - as mine hadn't flowered it must be another bird present. :-)

Oooops! I'm glad to hear that you still have one - I keep increasing the number of mine as I like the contrast they make with.......almost anything!

I find them especially useful as ground cover in difficult positions - around a couple of small picea conifers and beside the front gate which has pretty poor soil

My smile slipped, lol.

Oh - poor Wagger. :-((
