Fairy, your flower colours sound gorgeous, right up my street. My bright borders on in my front garden, lining the path. I love how cheery it looks. The back garden is softer, mainly pinks, blues, purples, whites and soft yellows. I didn't like orange flowers at all for a long while. I think it was because of my loathing of marigolds that we had in my childhood garden, couldn't stand the smell at all. Then l fell for geum Totally Tangerine, and the Lady Emma Hamilton rose , and l was converted.
Verdun, thanks for the information about Eucomis, I'm glad to know from you and Fairy it's a bit tougher than l thought. That Eucomis Dark Star is fabulous, quite of another planet if you know what l mean . Go on buy yourself some, then show us your pictures. Ooh whilst your here Verdun, how do l start my salvia guanajuato back into growth. I've had it potted up, but kept dry in the spare room all winter, should l trim off the old stems and treat as a dahlia, does it re shoot from the base? Cheers.
