Tibouchina alstonville still flowering well


This is the best flowering this hibiscus has had. It has had at least 7 or 8 flowers out every day for weeks... trouble is half of them are on the other side that we don't see from the house.


Evolvulus, Blue Eyes, are covered in flowers as usual.


Centradenia, not as many flowers as usual as it is starting to get too shady in this part.


The two different dietes near the bridge have been flowering well lately

Gail what a lovely show to herald in SPRING,





I was very pleased to see the pics of the 2 ground covers on the post , I showed Faye who was just bringing me morning tea , She thought they were great and now can imagine how ours will look I have both blue and pink in 2 areas , one lot from MA, one lot from you . I have one of MA 's Iris in bud . can't tell which one till it flowers. The Hibiscus is fab.and that Tibouchina is a wonderful colour , its going to flower forever I think.

Everything looking great Gail, so much colour.. I have pruned all my Hibiscus and they are leafing up already they are quick this year.. My two dietes have been flowering for weeks too, now the walking iris are starting I filled the wheelie bin up a few weeks back with them mt two plants has multiplied to a 2.5mt x 2 mts patch gasp

Your Tibouchina is flowering so well I meant to tell you your T. elsa plants are over a metre tall and almost a wide I did prune the dead flowers off but maybe I should have given then a proper prune to thicken them up a little more, do you prune yours.

Gwen, I can't remember a time when the tibouchina hasn't been without a flower - sometimes it only has half a dozen flowers but never less.

Mary-Anne, Tib Elsa can get a little straggly so I do give it a light trim occasionally. I win't be pruning this hibiscus as it is the one the dog used to eat all the time... it is the first time it has actually had lots of leaves on it gasp We did prune all the others back last weekend, all about a metre high now - many were over 2m.

Our walking iris is in a very dry area so doesn't seem to grow that quick... luckily. Those dietes, particularly the white one doesn't know how to stop flowering. The lemon seems to get quite a few flowers then stops for a few weeks then flowers again. The purple iris (you can just see one behind the furtherest dietes, there is another one just off the right of the picture) seems to have finished flowering now... but it does deserve a break as it put on a beautiful display.
