Lovely colour aren't they Moti :o)

Beautiful colour Neelan...This is planted near the compost bin in a very sheltered spot...I put it there 'cause i was afraid of loosing it, i have a few seedlings growing from its seed so i can try it in a more open spot....

Beautiful aren't they.

Wow........., no flowers on mine this year but I did think I'd lost them so I'm pleased just to have leaves :-)

Beautiful indeed Hywel...wish they lasted a bit longer though....As long as its alive Simbad...give it a good mulch with compost this Autumn and keep it moist during the Summer....:>)

I'll do that Motinot, I was told to cut the flowers off the first year, but couldn't bring myself to do it :-(

Really nice Motinot!

Oh! Motinot looked at your other pic first...So don't bother answering the question of what plant this is..lol
It is similar to the Poppy, or is that just my opinion??
Did you grow this plant from seed? Nice to see this plant
enjoying some sun...

Thanks Meanie...cant believe it has survived...3 years now...Freesia, its a Himalayan Poppy, so you're right....I bought it at a local flower show called Hillsborough, its on again this weekend, but i wont be able to make it.:<(...i actually bought 2, my sister has the other one, doing well for her..:>)

has this flowered every year motinot?

18 May, 2012

 

Didnt flower its first year Sticki, but flowered last year and this year...:>)

21 May, 2012

 

hmm mine flowered last year but no sign of a bud this year

21 May, 2012

 

I dont know why that is Sticki, if there is plenty of green growth on it, then we know its alive, did you feed and mulch it after flowering last Spring?....

21 May, 2012

 

yes i did, there are plenty of healthy leaves on it.

21 May, 2012

 

Dont know then Sticki....any possibility it might still flower?...:>)

21 May, 2012

 

i shall keep looking!!??

but i have a feeling the bud appeared before the leaves last year much earlier than this

21 May, 2012

 

Ok....I have 'sheldonii' ...it developed lots of leaves before the buds appeared....

21 May, 2012

 

mine is a different type, im fairly sure, will have another look tomorrow

21 May, 2012

 

Hope it turns out ok for you Sticki....

21 May, 2012

21 May, 2012

 

I have a good feeling about your Mech....:>)

21 May, 2012

21 May, 2012
