Thank you Sheila, and yes Flori, its certainly different isnt it.

I grew this a couple of years ago Cinders...Its so pretty isnt it........

Beautiful pic ... this is the one you named for me recently isn't it? :o) . . . . .

This is the one I got at Dotty's. Its really got going now. Its so unusual isnt it. I've only got it in a small pot and its clambering all up my shed.

Very nice! :o)

A bit like a climbing crocosmia? Is seed readily available does anyone know? Its lovely Cinders.

Thank you Plantaholic.

Tet, I think you can buy these seeds quite readily. I feel sure I have seen them somewhere. If I can get any seeds off them I will send you some.

Thank you. I will keep my eyes peeled!

Milky, I'm sorry just realised I missed you in my thankyous. You didnt manage to save yours through the winter then ? I was wondering if I could, but probably not. Can't bring too many things into the house for winter, no room for humans !!

Tetra ... I asked for ID on this and one of the comments (from Meanie) stated "like all Morning Glories it's easy! But it does need a long, hot Summer to thrive!" ... Will we get one of those next year ... your guess is as good as mine really! ... :o)))

I have this plant too...grew from seed, Meanie tells me it is frost tender...wonder if it could be over-wintered indoors?...:>)

29 Aug, 2011

 

There's me thinking I'd found something original ... lol! .....

29 Aug, 2011

 

Never mind Shirley...I thought it was a wonderful find!

29 Aug, 2011

 

Cinders, no mine didnt survive winter but I think it was purely like you...you can only bring in a certain amount of plants.....lol....

29 Aug, 2011

 

Oh help! Ive done it again. Soooo sorry Cinders!

29 Aug, 2011

 

What a beauty

29 Aug, 2011

 

Thank you.

29 Aug, 2011

 

I've decided to grow some again next year..........

29 Aug, 2011

 

Have you Meanie ? They are quite attractive aren't they.

29 Aug, 2011

 

Well, we're clearly due a steamy summer next year to make up for this!! Just what they need to do well!

30 Aug, 2011

 

Yes I agree. I can't see any sign of seed pods on it yet though.

30 Aug, 2011

 

I found them to be slow (and slightly unreliable) seeders Cinderella............

30 Aug, 2011

 

I thought they might be. Just posted another pic of it.

I'm just looking at pics of this beautiful annual climber ... need something to clothe the trellis before the Honeysuckle gets going! ... Cinders, any idea how long this bloomed for last year please?

Hi Shirley, It started flowering June/July time and kept on till the weather turned cold. Must have been about November I think, so if you got them going early and it was in the garden or a large tub it would look good. Its not a very dense plant, sort of dainty. I got it at Dotty's open day, but I have seen packets of seed in the GC. I did try to take seed but it didnt produce many. Will see if I can get some going.

Thanks for that info. Cinders ... I shall look out for some seeds before too long ... need something to cover the trellis while I wait to see if the Pyracanthas recover! .....
