Flower I.D. anyone??

Posted: 19/02/2014 at 11:47

Thanks everyone. I do hope it is real. Hibiscus lavender beauty is close but as Jim says the stigma is different (is it possible for it to be cut down for photographic style?). Those photos by Sharon Web are stunning Edd!

Flower I.D. anyone??

Found this beauty when googling for something else. I'm just interested if anyone knows what it is. Thank you.

Morning all.
Chicky - im still trying both diary and list but kinda think the list will be most useful, biased as im a bit of a closet list lover.
Clari - thought yesterdays dream was telling you you were trying to suppress your wild side. My interpretaion of todays dream - you're racing away from the past towards a future goal. So - be wild and go for your goals!!! Like staceys explanation better!
Started this post ages ago , prob 30+ mins, kept getting interrupted so no idea where im up to now. Hello to all those who sneaked in while i was typing.
Garden looks better from yesterdays efforts, but birds seem to be stealing my worms now!
Panda, handbag smile winging its way to you.
Love to those who need it.

Design student looking for help!

Caleb, I like the idea of a spray nozzle. I find it quite difficult to water in my greenhouse where the shelves dont allow much room to tilt a watering can in. Sorry im not so good at explaining that!
Thanks dove for that explanation, it helps explain why my echinaceaas in the greenhouse are mildewed, can't get the watering can angle right to reach in even to the trays and tend to use a hose pipe which goes everywhere.
A long spout as Clarindon said would help and I quite like her idea of a flexible spout but it would need to be firm enough to stay in place I think.
Good luck Caleb.

thank you. I'll let you know the progress - its in the area which is dark and dry, so that will add 'drama' and plants suggested should be ok with shade at least. better than before when it was a bit of a dumping ground!
