I bet that its your pride and joy, unusual and pretty too.

Oh, Angie - I didn't warn you that they disapppear under the ground in summer - so mark where they are!!!

24 May, 2009

 

you did tell me Spritz, i will indeed, i lost this really unusual bell flower that i had last year because of it disappearing and forgetting to mark it - won't be making that mistake again!

This looks very simular to a passion flower I have that has just flowered if you are interested its called Lavender Lady its leaves go backwards like this before opening out a bit darker colour though. Is this a bulb?

7 Jul, 2009

 

passion flower? i assume you mean colour? no they are not bulbs, they are perennial plants, i had to get one after seeing all the lovely pic's of them on here... i think they look more like cyclamen, to be honest Morgana.

No not just colour the way the leaves go backwards I will upload a picture next week I hope as I cannot use much on this its temp till I get reconnected.

10 Jul, 2009

 

oohhhh will look forward to that, never seen a reflexed one before...sounds lovely.

11 Jul, 2009

 

Mine are disappearing fast, Angie! Must remember to get the plant labels in...

11 Jul, 2009

 

will do, thanks for the reminder..have you ever grown them from seed... i have loads of seeds and acording to my books should be easy.... but then they have never seen my efforts of seed sowing... lol

12 Jul, 2009

 

No -that's because I don't really want any more, only a white one! :-)

13 Jul, 2009

 

oh ok then... lol do they self seed then?

15 Jul, 2009

 

Been bought one as a prezzy by my youngest son who was showing his old mini at Newby Hall. They also had a plant fair there. Whereabouts can you plant them, and do they spread? Thanks.
