Helianthemum canum
« on: April 28, 2007, 10:30:37 PM »
Do you ever see a plant and lust after it?

Today I saw Helianthemum canum and fell in love at first sight. To save me stealing one from the Burren - as if - does anyone know where I can beg or buy a plant/s

Here's hoping!

A beautiful flower Mark. Not one I know. Is is as compact as it appears the pics? That would be a definite plus point. :)

less than 10 inches, maybe, but very compact

That looks like a really nice plant Mark. I like the orangey yellow of the flowers, with the grey foliage.

A little plea here, and I speak on behalf of all the NZ members of the Forum, though without their express permission. PLEASE change that portrait in your atavar, back to the original or to another altogether. This new one with the sunglasses looks very like a TV front person in NZ, name of Paul Holmes. PH is such a simpering pratt that if you continue with this pic, I can never again take you seriously.
