If you have it in a large pot,you can cut it down like you would prune a buddleja to store it in the spare bedroom, etc.  The bits you cut off ,you can root in water(I use coffee jars) for new plants. I renew on a three year cycle. year 1 cutting grown on in 6 inch pot. year 2 put into largest pot I've got, feed and water and let it flower in pot. Cut down and take cuttings.Year 3 stick it in the ground, let it flower, take cuttings, let the frost have it.

OH decided he  wanted to climb the  Sydney harbour Bridge on one of our Australia trips. He had a heart attack six months earlier.  I couldn't talk him out of it. I ended up doing it with him.  Lots of ibuprofen next day!!!!!

I like my aeroplane doors firmly shut.

Walking round a garden is much more soothing.

could you name a few flowers for me?

What is this?
