Erodium Bishops Form

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 15:40

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!

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

Aaah, thanks Dove.

must be the one I have then - skeletal leaves are the norm.

so nice that you still keep in touch with the old plants in your old garden

Hello Dove 

Thanks for that. Maybe I have those too....no idea what they look like, but leaves have been chomped through everywhere.

Guess I could use nematodes.

do you still have yours and did it get plagued with fungus?
