Heavenly bamboo

Posted: 22/06/2013 at 23:28

I can highly recommend this plant. I have this in a pot. I have had it for yeas and really love it. I have just purchsed 2 more of the dwarf variety 'Firepower' and planted them in the garden ( cheap as they were looking poorly so I couldn't resist ) both doing well. They are no relation to bamboo and imo very good value. Evergreen. Good coloured young foliage in spring followed in May/June by panicles of creamy white flowers then another change of colour in autumn followed by red berries. They require little to no pruning - I only remember taking off the spent flower stems after the berries have faded. They are also supposed to be good feng shui to position them near an door or entrance.

I have a large flowered single one called 'Snow Queen' supposed to be scented - beautiful flowers but very little scent. It's flowering better than it ever has at the moment.

Help identifying plant

I have just left an answer on your other thread!

Anyone know what it is ?

Could be a Phygelius... how about a pic of the leaves/the shape of the plant? Then you will get a better answer and not just a guess like mine 

Capillary Matting.

It doesn't make any difference. The wick is connected to the mat which should be underneath the plant pots. The wick will continue to saturate the matting as long as there is a supply of water to it. Everyhing else is irrelevant.

Weigela, I agree.

Cucumber or courgette?

It is a wait and see game then. All plants are looking healthy so hopefully it will remain that way and I'll be patient. Thanks to both of you for your tips.
