Wow.... I saw the other picture but this one really shows off the size and shape of the plant and how laden it is with berries. Soooooooo jealous. I want one now!!!

I've had it for a few years.Do get one,P.They are spectacular.Do you agree about doing the PYRA next year?

20 Oct, 2011

 

Wow what a delightful sight

Isn't it lovely,D Sadly,it's planted in an area that I don't pass often!

I would be so proud if this was in my garden Ml. I would do a special detour to see it. The berries last well in water too. I would cut some for the kitchen. Sorry if thats abhorrent to you - I cut most things!! This pic should definately go into goypedia. (I voted for it)

Your so kind,P,I haven't thought of doing that,BUT,the idea is in my head now.Will do so Sunday!I'm not usually a cutter!

I am definately going to do a pyracanta next year. I want a nice straight stemmed one. I think they had some nice tall ones at Stonegreen nursery. So I can do a chop straight away. I have even thought where I'm going to put it - how sad is that!

Do cut a few of those callicarpa, they last really well in water. I nearly bought one at Dobbies today, but wasn't sure where to put it. I have many more slightly shady places than sunny ones sadly. I will have to look up what conditions they like.

Ooh your well ahead of me,P.I will have to get a move on.You've obviously been doing some thinking!!.....The Callic is in a bed which gets morning sun but is in shade rest of time.

A Pyracanta. The very thing as I have a vacant site which would be ideal for one - but then, a Callicarpa would be ideal too, especially if it was half as lovely as yours. Now, I wonder if they would both fit!!...
