Thanks - it makes a change to have one without the spots! :-)

Spots or not, these are fast becoming an obsession for me.
This is really lovely.

Glad you like it. The other one near it might flower - or might not. I think it's been munched!

Slimey s*ds! I had to stand my babies in the middle of a huge "saucer" full of water to keep them from being destroyed!
I got a plainer one today (photos up later) in the sale. The bug has bit!!

Good thinking - my spotty one has two buds left...fingers crossed...is your new one like this??

Mines a lilac coloured one, much less spotted than the "norm". I just put a photo up.

This is nice ! I only have the pale mauve formosana ,it has been under some holly trees for the last two years and hasn't flowered at all , I think I will move it to see if it makes a difference !

My two are in dappled shade - they get a bit of light....don't know if that helps?

31 Aug, 2010

 

How about this for a gaudy one though........

Six cm flowers!

Ummm...not too sure about that, Meanie! A bit...spotty! LOL

Hey, each to their own!
It's good that we all have our own tastes so that sites such as this can open our eyes up to new things.
I have a new pet dislike this year - the PINK perennial Lobelias that are showing up everywhere!!

31 Aug, 2010

 

I wonder if that's what I was sold with a label telling me that it was a Campanula ochroleuca, Meanie? lol. (I'm getting my money back!)

The other Tricytis I have is called 'Pink Freckles'....hmmmm....

Have you got a photo of your lovely new "Campanula"?
I saw one of these pink Lobelias yesterday called Salmon something or another! Much as I love my perennial Lobelias, not one of those is entering my garden. Sue is threatening to buy me one! If she does it'll be straight in the bin.

I posted it as a question last week - I wasn't sure what it was at the time.

31 Aug, 2010

 

I love these tricyrtis....I've planted a few this year and the first one is flowering today! I think I may be starting another 'collection'!! This one is a stunner and yes, nice to see a pure white one without the spots!
