Wow - nice colors! Mine are just white.
My collection is pitiful next to what the Botanical Gardens here grows; they have every possible shade from white to bloody red with stripes. I'll rummage my photo collection and see what I can turn up; I'm particularly fond of the variegated flower colours that they've produced by selective hybridization...
Yeah, do that. I'd be interested to see what different colors they come in.
By the way Lorax, as a winter project I bought some oyster-mushroom spores and a pressure cooker to sterilize substrate and am going to give mushroom cultivation a try. I love growing things but when you're this far from the equator you run out of light near the winter solstice. Mushrooms are good for a winter growing project because not only do they grow quickly but they don't need light for photosynthesis. Wish me luck!
I can see why that one is your fave Beth. Beautiful array of colours
I've sadly neglected my B. sanguinea this summer but in spite of that it has continued to keep blooming. It's a bit short of leaves and those are really tiny, but as you can see from tonight's photo, it still performs.
I will be moving it into my unheated greenhouse for the winter probably by the end of November, earlier if it looks like frost. Then I'll give it a heavy pruning and repot it with some compost. It seems that it actually does better without too much sun and with the cooler temperatures of our fall/winter/spring. Diane
I've never given it the chance to. A bit of early morning sun and that's it.
