Good point Bekkie.

Everything else in that bed flowers well though and I have never pampered it - honest

Erodium Bishops Form

Why is this?

It flowered in its first year, in a raised flower bed, and then never since (that was 3 years ago). Haven't moved it. Free draining, lots of sun, lovely leaves and seems very lush.

Am I doing something wrong?!

Plant. ID please!

Thanks all.

it is that name I was thinking of - but add autocorrect to my abysmal spelling and you get Free Montedhendron 

 

Thanks again x

That is an impressive plant - I'm getting trachelospermum envy too now  mine is sooooo small still and grows soooooo slowly!

Plant. ID please!

Someone was throwing it out (my neighbour has the shrub now) and she gave me this cutting.

No idea what it is - possibly a free montedhendron? (Sorry about the spelling).

Some buds starting to form, but may be a while until we see any flowers.

thanks
