My red has just started producing its red bracts - love these, as they add colour to our gardens in winter!

Mine too Bernieh, I love these too, just as you;ve said, they do add colour to our gardens!

That's it Panther - winter could be a dull time in the garden if it wasn't for these beauties. Actually saw a white one just last week in a nursery - didn't get it then but am thinking maybe my garden could do with a little more winter colour!!!

Bernieh, I have a white that has already started producing its bracts,...just so nice to see them.

You'll have to post some photos when it's in full bloom - think I'll definitely have to get one!

Bernieh, Panther:

Our San Diego Christmas plants are having competition with your plants in the Southern Hemisphere. It's all about
the competition. LOL! : > )

The weather must be changing Andy, as winds over here normally don't come till March followed by April showers.

Sixpence:

We haven't had consistently normal weather here in a year.
It's been crazy!

Strange is nt it, here today Andrews blog shows spring flowers a month early I think.

Yes, the weather has been so crazy...most likely, it's due to the very quick transition from El Niño to La Niña in the Pacific Ocean. It has a huge affect on our weather in the Western U.S.

Yes I understand that the ocean has an effect so does it to our weather too.
