So, a funny GBBD – I seem to have a mix of ‘expected’ early spring flowers, like the Iris Gordon, above and below
together with some tender, hot climate flowers that you think would know better. For example Melianthus major has just decided to have a second flush of flowers right now:
But to continue with ‘expected’ flowers, I have a only a few hellebores so far –
the odd Clematis Freckles,
and my one paltry Witch Hazel, Hamamelis, (could be Arnold’s Promise, but now starting to doubt it after Chloris said it was the last to flower…)
Less expected at this time of year are succulent flowers. These are in the (unheated) conservatory. Two Sempervivums
and an Aeonium.
Meanwhile, outside, Anisodontea capensis
my incredibly long flowering Leptospermum
and my stalwart Fuschia microphylla.
And in the greenhouse, in case you’re missing the sun, I’ll finish with Abutilon Orange Marion.
With thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens who hosts the GBBD.
