It looks happy in its location. Needs a bit of pruning at the end of the season to encourage it even more.
Got another I planted in the office garden and that’s looking particularly happy too. Too young to flower yet though.
Happy Friday my friends.
We came home from Rome early this morning to be greeted with this lovely thing by our front door:
In a space of week, it woke up and produced all of these lovely flowers. It’s quite unfortunate that my gardener decided arbitrarily to chop the thing while we were away last time. I’m nurturing it back with judicious pruning. Hopefully it’ll be okay in a couple of years.
The first of the season! I love this plant which I grew from seed a couple of years ago. Although heavily attacked by mealy bugs and fungus this year, it survived after I heavily pruned the worst affected parts. I look forward to more of its gorgeous flowers.
I’ve got some seeds if you want to add this lovely plant to your garden. Please contact me if you want some.
Have a wonderful Friday my friends.
