Mackaya bella - Forest Bell Bush

Mackaya bella - Forest Bell Bush (Mackaya bella - Forest Bell Bush)

My Forest Bell Bush is still blooming. This is the most it has ever bloomed in years...most like due to all the rain we've had this year. Photo taken April 16, 2011.

That's lovely - sometimes rain is good!
In fact, I'm getting quite desperate for some.....

Thanks! Yes, when we receive good rains here in San Diego, we celebrate. We probably won't have any more rain here until late Nov or Dec. (that's the long, normal dry season here).

It's heading that way here!

I don't think your climate will ever be as dry as in San Diego.

The shrub can grow to be 12ft/4m tall...however, many times it kept smaller.
