Hi again everyone!
Another ID request - anyone know what this one's called?
Peachy/ orange flowers with yellow throats, about 3cms wide. Bright green leaves up to 16cms long. Plant stands around 30cms tall at the moment.




Best wait for Meanie again...I think.

Good idea, Pimpernel...this is going to be a regular occurrence, I think!

Got three more today - this, a spotty begonia and the strangest looking 'heather' I've ever seen!! :)

Thing is it looks familiar again....Lol Heather ?

13 Oct, 2011


Lol! Yes, apparently so...African Heather - comes in purple and white!
I'll probably post it for another I.D. soon...

It's difficult to tell the scale, but it looks VAGUELY like some sort of a ginger plant. Wrong continent?

Sorry,K,no,idea.The flower looks very like a canna,but not the leaves.Backdrop colour goes well with it!!

Thanks's really quite pretty....
I was sort of wondering about ginger too... :)

If you DO find out what it is, Karen, you will let us know, won't you? I'm glad I'm not alone with my strange guesses!
