Liz- Some Skimmia's will never berry because they are male.
Toad Lillies-Tricyrtis are still looking good after frosts and Nerines in North East
I have seen this grown in pots in North East. Great Autumn colour about now and hangs on for ages. Never noticed the flowers but just looked online and saw spring. It is not like the past two years have even been simular weatherwise?
Don't know if that's any help?
Can you chop back eucalytus as you would do willow? Then you would get the fresh nice foliage? Seem to think you might be able to? Anyone?
Found this good link apparently hardy to -10 but haven't seen it get through a winter
I have been told it isn't hardy in North East at 800ft
Would second Callicarpa, lovely little pearl like lilac berries
Or Schizostylus would probably flower then.
Would be concerned a acer might have lost it's leaves by november.
In North East England unusual to get them through the winter. Don't find seedlings either (this is in a nursery with quite a few plants) sants. Made it through last year but not a cold winter in comparison to norml winter but took a long time to get away.
I have been told by a supplier some done by cuttings in the spring may not develop tubers and have been bred to concentrate growth more into flowering. Not sure if this is correct though? I wonder whether the use of growth retardant could affect tubeer production? The ones we had to try have produced tubers though
Or a ornamental quince, chanomeles? (sp?)
