I thought this would produce some entertainment. I'd really love to know how you water a 15 meter tall tree, Ladybird...;-) "Access to water" Ceres. Well there's the rub. If you knew how hard water is to come by here...
The tree is technically still alive as it still has a few shoots, but it didn't flower well last year and will be worse this. It could be just old age, I don't think these live very long. I'm not really into euthanasia though.
At the moment 2 has my vote, partly because I have just had to guillotine another Thunbergia grandiflora that was growing through another tree and gradually smothering it. I won't say cut it down because that would have been impossible. It looked absolutely fabulous,however, Nutcutlet, and flowered for nearly all year round!
It's a whole different ball-game here. This is jungle. Climbers are completely rampant...Thanks for the excellent response though. Keep them coming. Ian.
BTW Does anyone know why Thunbergias (several of them ) are called "clock vines"?
