Wonga Wonga Creeper is a mass of flowers hanging down



Callistemon tinaroo almost finished





First potted Anemone planted after I lost those 180 due to the rain



White Begonia rhizomatous ?



Pyrostegia venusta is still flowering its head off..



So are the Nasturtiums lots more opening every day



Iris tectorum.



Clivia.



The first two Freesias opened today this and an orange one.



So many new flowers opening every day shame I don't have the time to take pics. Sad

The Wonga Wonga Creeper is lovely, Mary-Anne, but the Pyrostegia venusta is really WOW!! Wonder if that could survive down here? Nice to see the Nasturtiums and Clivias too, I'm waiting for mine to flower but that won't be for a while. In fact, I only planted the Clivias this year, do you think they will flower? Beautiful little Iris you have there.

Yes it is Gwen its name is Pandorea pandorana I also have a small one about 8 inches tall now planted that I grew from seeds that one of our former members sent me its supposed to be orange and it came from her garden in the Blue Mountains that's cold so you must be able to grow this native all over Australia I have it growing up and across one of the treated pine posts set in concrete that is holding the pipe up from the gutters that go to the tank its twisted around the pipe and its not a heavy creeper kind of delicate like its flowers though there is lots of it now.. winky-winky

I was just wondering if it was the Wonga vine that you planted on that tank pipe... you answered that question already winky-winky It's a pretty one alright as are the others.

My freesias have just opened this last week too but only yellow ones so far... that's all that flowered last year too so don't know if any other colours survived yet.

That Pyrostegia venusta has a different common name in the far north ,would'nt you know it.
Its called Japanese Honeysuckle.which I think suits it.

Yes and its looking good Gail and covers up those unsightly pipes and hangs down on the side edge of the back decking even our lovely neighbour is saying she cannot see us anymore when we are out there Very Happy The only problem is the Grevillea pteridifolia with its fantastic long orange brushes is starting to flower and the creeper is blocking it Crying or Very sad

Gail remember how we cannot get the seeds to germinate well I found this on a site.

Propagation can be carried out from seed preferably fresh and with the seed coat "nicked" to expose the embryo slightly prior to sowing. "" Do you want to have another go later when it seeds..

Gwen it seems we have some strange names in the S.E. too whistle

Marlene I am hoping it does it was its first flowering last year and not that many flowers, this year it has lots, the small orange one I am growing from seed given to me from one of our Members so they do have seed pods. I will keep my eye out if you are after some..

Ray I have a small plant growing from seeds from a plant in the Blue Mountains they also get snow there..winky-winky

Marlene just letting you know that the Wonga Wonga flowers have no seeds at present, those little flowers are going brown paper crisp then fall off..

So I did a search and found that the seed pods do not come till the Summer..
