It's nice when plants keep flowering into the autumn :)

My French ones have flowered and flowered, but the one I bought from GB has no green left. I think because the plant was root bound and the soil dried out.

Do you think it might come back Siris? they are such good value, this one is a bit of a thug, but, I really don't mind, easy to pull out......I need to get the orange one that Karen has, because we have changed the top border to yellow, orange and blue, for a late summer hot border.......well!! that's the cunning plan!!

Beautiful, aren't they. My Indian Summer has been brilliant but Alstroemeria 'Summer Breeze' hasn't done as well.

I shall look out for Indian Summer...seems to be a reliable one, they vary so much.....have lost at least 6 different varieties over the last few ... year's.....

I have both Indian Summer & Summer Breeze but I can't tell them apart they look so similar.

Really Gf......I find Nurseries do change the name for the same plant!!

Now my Summer Breeze is more of a light orange colour with lighter coloured leaves, quite different from Indian Summer. I think we get mis-sold plants, dont you.

Mis sold plants often, Dawn. If not in flower, difficult to tell, even in a garden centre. People move the labels if not stapled to the pot.

I never thought of that, labels being moved around. You're right, best to buy in flower, I will remember the that. Definitely the golden rule when buying Wisteria.
I can't talk though, when growing seed, I always get them mixed up lol

Always best to buy in flower, if possible...

I will remember that, thank you

Very good points to keep in mind, I think I must have 2 x Indian Summer (or maybe Indian Breeze?).
