Spanish Flag ... again!


Spanish Flag  ...  again! (Ipomoea lobata)

I had to move this pot of Ipomoea lobata to a more sheltered place in the garden. The giant Bay tree in neighbour's garden gives it a windbreak!

The plants look fabulous, Shirley!

The first time I ever saw these in flower was when I visited the Cambridge Botanical gardens many years ago. I thought I would get some seeds & grow them on the balcony but every spring I forget!

You are quite right, Shirley! I had forgotten about that until you reminded me! But I must try to remember for next spring!

Balcony, write a reminder in your diary/calendar for the Spring!

Excuse my ignorance, but is this a perennial? I think it would look great in my new grass bed.

Not a perennial, but a quick growing annual climber. How is the new grass bed coming along?

It's doing good thanks Shirley. Planted up, it just needs to establish.

It will look fabulous before too long ... :o)
