Scentsational!


Scentsational!

I found this in a local garden centre and had to have it! its called 'Northern Hi-Lights' I think this may be the same as or similar to RK Wrights that he posted recently?
It has a beautiful scent ~ a cross between jasmine and honeysuckle.

thank you everyone ~ i really liked it and because RK Wright had also recommended it I didnt need any persuading to buy it.

thanks SL ~ that will help decide where it goes. some parts of my back garden maybe only get an hours sun even in high summer ~ some get less than that. in winter very little gets more than a couple of hours?

hope you find one klahanie ~ when i saw it in the GC i realised they were probably not hard to get hold of but i wasnt taking a chance!

thanks paul ;-))

the scent is amazing linda ~ i am quite tempted to keep it in a pot so i can put it where i wont miss the scent!? would it be ok in a pot? dont want to lose this one if i move house!

Should be ok Sticki I had mine in the pot for ages till I found where to put it..

thanks SL ~ there is a space where it should go but will only get light for a few hours in the summer ~ and its further away than i would like it ~ its a bit of a star when its out!!

I agree mines about 5 ft from the back door :-)

5 Jun, 2013

 

im very tempted to do that but it says it might grow 5 foot tall ~ i wouldnt be able to see the rest of the garden!!

5 Jun, 2013

 

Lol yes mines put on a foot of growth this year already.

thanks lynda, no flowers on it now but I hope it will be lovely again next year, I might keep it in a pot ~ do you think it will be ok like that?

I have Northern Lights pale, pinkish, lavender. Mine has taken a long time to recover from a transplant. I should have put it in a pot, I think. That is only my suggestion. It is beautiful too. A little more delicate than yours, I suspect.
Also, if I like a suffering plant, I hate to lose it. Out it goes
if it is not a good patient.
