plant I don't have but would love

Posted: 31/07/2014 at 00:02

Saw this plant, the one with long, drooping stalks and conical-shaped pink flowers in the botanical gardens near me. It's sooo pretty, would love to know what it was.

Anyone got a coveted plant they wold love to have but don't/can't?

Have seen this all over the place but still none the wiser to

what it actually is. Grows tall, 4-5ft.

 3.

These leaves are only small but silver around the edges and

on the underside.

 This one is big, over 6ft to the top of the flower stems.

Just finished flowering recently.

 

oxalis rust

Posted: 30/07/2014 at 22:37

 

Hi all you lovely gardeners,

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on oxalis rust.

My gorgeous big oxalis red wine has a bad case of it.

I put some treatment on it yesterday but I'm not sure it'll pull through.

Should I do anything else? I don't want to lose it.

Thanks loads, Mel

Rudbeckia?...any ideas what this is?

Posted: 16/07/2014 at 18:48

Yep, pics taken yesterday. According to BBC plant finder I. magnifica flowers in late summer and the description is similar to my Mum's plant, however the flower doesn't have the dark centre that hers has.

Rudbeckia?...any ideas what this is?

Oh yeah, does look incredibly similar, but the leaves are different too.

Wow, that was quick fidgetbones. Thanks so much, it seems that is what it is! My Mum will be pleased. Amazing plant.
