Surviving well in a watered pot, though this was last week and it is toiling a bit now, the gracious leaves of Astilboides tabularis, now having its fourth birthday from seed, Tostat, August 2016

Begonia luxurians 816

New to me this year, Begonia luxurians, semi-shaded position and well-watered, and I really love it. What luxury!

Clerodendrum bungei lasted only a week in the heat and is already setting seed

Deinanthe caerulea Blue Wonder 716

Deinanthe caerulea ‘Blue Wonder’ is taking it’s time to settle into a pot. But the strange flowers are quite unique.

The lobster-pink flowerspike of Hesperaloe parviflora– very badly treated by me, but it has flowered for the first time! Unfortunately it was decked this week by the dog!

  1. I love Hedychium gardnerianum. I moved mine this Spring, only about 4 feet but enough to protect it from builders’ big feet. To my surprise it is not only flourishing but is about to bloom, two whole months earlier than last year! Perhaps it should stay where it is now?

  2. Yes, mine has been much better this year, apart from the heat…and I moved it, similarly only about 4 feet but it is in a little more semi- shade than before, and it loves it. So, staying put sounds good to me!
