So do I - but this one is a bit sad, as it fell over completely in the gales last year. We heaved it back up and it is tied to a stake! How it survived, I really do NOT know!

I know some of us are moaning about too much rain, but when this has raindrops on it, it looks stunning!

Looks beautiful! I've learned the moisture probably saves you. This is very invasive in drier climates.

What a lovely name for a lovely shrub - btw, ramosissimo in Italian literally means "full of branches" -

Really, Gt? That's amazing!

What a lovely translation, Terry.

It's one of my favourites....but far....far too big for my garden....sigh.....

That is beautiful, can I have the miniature version when someone breeds it?

In Utah this was introduced and it steals all the water from the other species and is taking over. It deposits salt which inhibits any natives from coming back. They are making strong efferts there to eradicate it completely. There are stands of them dead all over where my parents live, where water is short supply and tamarix a big drinker.

Crumbs....not a very nice girl to know then eh...

Greenthumb, that's an amazing fact.

Think I just changed my mind!

They are beautiful. :-) I wish I could have one. The winter wouldn't do it well.

You haven't seen the wires attaching it to the stake, Gt!!

Lol....Wires! There are gales then. :-)

Yes - we are close to the west coast, so we get the prevalent westerlies. Sometimes, they're very strong!

Good info. Greenthumb, Terry and Spritz for the forum, there is a lot of information out there.

18 Aug, 2009

 

I do, too - that's why it's attached to a strong stake! I don't want to lose it.
