Sun catching the top of the Melianthus.....


Sun catching the top of the Melianthus..... (Melianthus major)

This shrub is always so late in our garden, by the time it gets going the frosts are on their way.....

It is in semi-shade, would most probably do much better in full sun......

I lost mine last year , I've no idea why it had grown to a nice size and I loved the foliage it was over shadowed by a hedge maybe that was why , next time I will place it somewhere else !

Amy they are tender plants, will not survive a very bad winter without protection....Motty we had one flower when we lived in the Midlands, not had any here?
Plantholic we all do, better luck next year?
Sixpence I ought to move it, but it has it's feet down now, so I am very reluctant to do so.

Very healthy plant. Will it bloom?

I see this plant around a lot. I always though it was super hardy. Of course, we don't get cold enough to test how hardy it is...as we don't get frost.

Delonix it will not bloom now, it needs a hot summer, the first frost and it will be goodbye!!
