Hello new here so my first posting
I was given some pea like seed pods and this is what they grew to be. A beaufiful flowering shrub . I would love to know just what its called Can any one tell me Please regards Maxine
your plant is Clianthus puniceus, it's half hardy so won't survive a winter outside. It's evergreen and will grow to around 3m.
Hello Maxine - I would be very proud of myself if I'd grown something that lovely from a seed! A gorgeous thing and I hope it overwinters ok for you.
....and nice to meet you by the way
Thank you Paula I now know what it is and a bit more about it.now It did survive last winter because not knowing it was it got left outside . I am going to save ALL it's seed pods .
