Erysimum 'Apricot Delight'


Erysimum 'Apricot Delight' (Erysimum 'Apricot Delight')

I have these in the back garden border - to my surprise, they died in the frost. They're quite a hardy plant...not this time. :-((

What a shame, lovely colour, I have one with a variegated leaf (Cotswold something), which fingers crossed looks ok.

'Bowles' Mauve' survived well, so did a variegated one, and the yellow one as well! These were sheltered and in the warmest part of the garden. They still didn't make it. :-((

lost all mine apart from a good sized 'chelsea jacket, one bowles mauve cutting and one yellow gem. lost this one 2 years ago.

Oh dear. If we get any more cold winters, they might have to be classed as 'annuals', mightn't they!

or half hardy/ tender yet more to fleece. :o(

Nope. I have enough to fleece - these were not expensive, and for the flowering period, which as you know will be right through until October, they're excellent value.

you hav elots of wonderful flowers in your garden Barbara

Thanks, Holly. Yes, Carol - the previous plants came through the last winter, so I shall have to hope they do again. These Erysimum are so lovely, and they 'go' with my colour scheme.

I do love the colour of this one.....

Thank you, Dd. I just 'have' to have these in the back garden scheme - they fit so well. :-))

So you have the same weather, do you? Isn't it a pain....:-(((

'fraid so, I'm going stir crazy at the moment LOL

You'd laugh at me - yesterday I dashed in and out between showers to do odd things - I had to give up at about 5 though - it POURED and didn't stop.

we had for once a dry day, but used it to go to that GC in Plymouth :))
I checked my Apricot one, and it's survived :D

28 Mar, 2010

 

That's good! Mine did the previous year, so I was hoping...

Were there any lovely plants around at Plymouth? (Silly question - of COURSE there were!)

28 Mar, 2010

 

LOL yes, but I was very restrained, I'm saving myself for the Cornwall show ;)

29 Mar, 2010

 

When is that? Soon?

29 Mar, 2010

 

yes it's 10/11th April, at Bocconoc House, lovely show run by the Cornwall Garden Society, and it's nice they use mostly local nurseries.

29 Mar, 2010

 

VERY soon! Sounds great. I hope you've saved up your pocket money! ;-)
