Clianthus puniceous


Clianthus puniceous

Clianthus puniceous trying again to flower after a very early start of flower buds in January which were finished off by frost. Quite a few more bunches to come.

Oh wow, How old is this plant? Think mine has quite a while to go.
Ps my Hosta are coming into leaf, maybe you could glance at my questions' page to see if you think the naming is correct so far.

How do you keep the snails off this one? Or is it just Bracknell snails that have an appetite for clianthus?

Thanks for that comment, Andrew. Will keep an eye open for Southern snails.

I don't have a problem with snails on the Clianthus Andrew. I really don't know why because they like everything else here. It's 4 or 5 this year Siris. Without checking back to first flowers I'm not sure but it's flowered from when it was in it's 3rd year.

I checked back and I found it in 2011.

I'm hoping for some flowers from the white at the end of this year. Can't wait.
