Mine has had a second flush of flowers (not as many as the earlier flush mind) at the beginning of June - very odd. Did yours have an earlier flush or is this it's main one?

I had an early-flowering azalea that produced some more flowers a couple of weeks ago. I blame the crazy, mixed-up weather. Poor things think we've had another winter and it's spring again.

I have seen a few with a second flush, enjoy!

I hope you don't mind me jumping in on your question Karenjane as I am interested in the comments re the weather possiblt being the cause.
Only just notice yesterday that my Rhodedendron Yakushimanum has produced flowers again, albeit they are a wee bit deformed (?) It is still putting on plenty of new growth - strange!!!
What will be the effect on these plants next spring? Do they still flower as we would normally expect them to?

I too have a evergreen Clematis Armandii that normally flowers in March bursting into flower now. Again I think it's the crazy weather. I've also noticed that some of the small birds that visit the garden are laying eggs again. I think we will soon have to rethink the planting of our gardens to suit the new weather patterns. What do you think?
