Thanks Yorkshire!
I wasn't sure that I wanted a yellow one really, but thankfully I really like it. It's more of a yellow based orange really!

This one is fabulous .On my shopping list and gone to favourites :o))))

10 Jun, 2011

 

On my favourites too, it is just amazingly beautiful. It's like a pure tongue of fire in the clear sky.

Thanks chaps!
It's said to make a good indoor plant too.
Sticki - I had to wait ages for that clear bit of sky!!

well it was well worth it and i for one appreciate it!! its like an exotic bird, i dont think i have ever seen anything like it.

10 Jun, 2011

 

Yes- initially I too thought this was a pic of two stunning birds when I saw the thumbnail....! How long is the flowering period & are you in the UK??

I guess that its common name, Parrots Beak, is quite apt.

Begoniamatt - I'm in Oxfordshire. It should flower all summer, although it does need a good summer to fulfil it's potential. Grown indoors they're perennials and can become quite a specimen over a few years, so I'm giving one a go in the conservatory. Each flower lasts about a week.

Parrots beak is a great name! You're up early!

11 Jun, 2011

 

Went yesterday!
On the plus side, my wallet is a heck of a lot lighter now!!!!!

11 Jun, 2011

 

i admire your positiveness ~ and has the dentist now bought his porche?

12 Jun, 2011

 

I think the Porsche came with the last visit - I noticed that the Range Rover is a year old now so that must be due for replacement!

just one more scale and polish and you should see the new 2011 version in the private parking space!!

The new bridge that I'm having should be enough for a couple !!

Meanie:

Great photo!

It's so funny to see everyone get so excited about this plant. We pretty much take these plants for granted here...because they are so commonly planted everywhere. lol! :>)

There's a fuchsia-colored flowering variety, also (I think it's relatively new here).

Thanks Delonix!
Ideal plant over there as it requires about six hours of direct sunlight to perform best. I'm trying one in the conservatory too, as they can make quite a specimen.
I have the red one that you're talking about too I think - it has much finer foliage. And in my case, no sign of flowers either yet......

Meanie:

The fucshia-colored one is NOT the red one (it's a pretty new variety - as far as I know). The red, orange and yellow varieties are very commonly grown and available for sale here.

17 Jun, 2011

 

OK - you need to get us a photo now!!!

18 Jun, 2011

 

Meanie:

In the next week or so I'll post some pics.

Good man!!!
