Pachystachys lutea - Golden Candles (Pachystachys lutea - Golden Candles)

My Golden Candles are in full bloom. It's amazing it's doing so well...as we've been having unusually cold weather here in San Diego, CA for the last week. Photo taken December 8, 2010.

How "cold"?

10 Dec, 2011

 

Well, the day temps are only 66ºF/19ºC and the last 4 early mornings have been almost unbearable with lows of 43ºF/6ºC. BRRRR!!!! Tonight it's finally warmed up to about normal...the normal low should be around 53ºF/12ºC. this time of year.

I've been basking in daytime temps of about 5°c with balmy nights of -1°c!

Meanie:

You're such a smart a**!!! lol!

Well, your temps are very COLD!!

I'm so glad, today the temp is already 65°F/18°C at 9:00 a.m. so it should be a very nice comfortable day of about 73°F/23°C., which is close to the normal high. :>))

My best boast at the moment is that my Sollya heterophylla are still flowering despite the cool weather!

Meanie:

Didn't know Sollya heterophylla could grow there. It's very common here.

You're not having cool weather, you're having cold weather! lol! :>)

It's one of my favourite plants!

To coin a phrase - I've posted many photos in the past!!

Now that you mention it...I do remember your photos. I just didn't remember them growing in the ground.

They are growing in pots - just being toughened up a bit!!

They came through last winter ok in the garage. I'm intending to put one in the ground next year after the move - I have a nice sheltered spot lined up for it......

Meanie:

So, it does grow in the ground there?
