Meadowland - do you mean in the pot? It's leucadendron 'Safari Sunrise', a variegated protea. It's in a very gritty, free-draining compost mix and should take -8C during the winter but I will fleece it for extra protection.

That's the one....thanks Andrew.Do you remember the prostrate Bottlebrush we both have?It hasn't put on much growth but looks healthy.

Nice and colourful Andrew. The leaves on the trees are just beginning to turn now. Down the road is the river Derwent with trees along and up into hills and that view always is fantastic in the Autumn. It's called the Amber Valley.

I'll take my camera down Andrew when the colour really gets going.

colourful foliage lasts much longer than colourful flowers, and is more harmonious, creating an overall mood rather than oases of colour. love this planting, Andrew
