Thank you - Seaburn helped me to come up with a replacement for a very dead Lavatera - and this is it! :-))

Me too - it's a bit like a pink Laburnum! :-)

It's a much better plant to have instead of that Lavatera. I don't miss it one bit!

I can imagine....

The Lavatera took up too much much space and flopped onto other plants. The Robinia stands above them, so it's much better. :-)

Look at the colour of that!!!! Gorgeous! I did try to grow a Robinia here once but it never grew, in fact I think it was dead when it arrived (in winter). But I've never seen one up here, so perhaps the wind is too much for them, and the cold. I've ended up planting three Lavatera this year B! How funny! :D

That's lovely! Not one I knew anything about - said to sucker, can you let us know whether it does or not and how bad it is, Spritz. I love it...

I do too - and yes, I'll keep an eye open for suckers.

Karen, I hope your Lavateras are better behaved than mine was! :-O
