Uli,

the fuchsia is in a pot and is placed indoors in winter. I've tried it once outside in a sheltered spot but it didn't survive the first winter.

Wim,

I think Fuschia procumbens is a lovely plant - the large black berries are also very attractive later in the year. It doesn't survive outdoors here either.


Calvin,

What a glorious selection of fabulous flowers, many very exotic to us in the northern hemisphere. Great posting.

Anemone aconitifolium - small but pretty flowers on a plant which travels freely about the garden
Aquilegia 'Arthur Guinness' - some extra shots, different views, for Paul Tyreman who is a fan of Guinness

Calvin,

I love that dwarf Haemanthus albiflos.  I like that compact growing form and shorter flower stem.  Excellent!

Paddy,

Should I admit here that I don't like any beer or guiness?  I don't mind the flowering versions though.  ;D
Cheers.

Wim,

I don't know exactly where I bought the aesculus but it was here in Ireland. There is a man in the midlands here whom I visit once in a while and he always has some unusual trees and shrubs which would never make it into mainstream garden centres but which are very worth seeking out. This plant is about 10 years old and still under 1 metre in height and showing no signs of growing to be much bigger. I really love it.


Paul, a beer once in a blue moon is enough for me also, a cider or two during the summer, maybe. Otherwise, a glass of wine with a meal or a drop of brandy for indigestion - I profess a terrible suffering from indigestion!


A few  more from the garden today.

Paddy,

Your Dietes is likely one of the Moraeas.... doesn't look quite right for huttonii, but similar.  I think there are about 5 different species of that type, so it would be one of those.  They are evergreen, have a single long leaf and then the lovely strong straight flower stems.  They're good clumpers and seeders too.  Very strong, drought hardy plants.
Cheers.

Paddy,
I like it when it's too hot for you to garden (must be quite exceptional in Ireland !  :-\ ) - it results in lots of excellent pictures of plants I'm not all that familiar with !  ;)
