Talkback: Give borders an autumn boost

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 20:02

Willmotianum I think nut.  Never grown plumbaginoides but,that's the creeper isnt it?  Willmottianum is a shrub .....sub shrub I guess......growing to 3 or 4' high.  Foliage takes on red tints now.  Griffithii is the evergreen version but doesn't have red autumn tints.

Well Done busy.  Think you are spot on.  Very observant.  I thought it was mahonia at first cos the leaves do turn red on some varieties.  Busy gets first prize today. - a virtual choc bar

Yes lovely shrubs.  Had Griffithi once.......richer flowers and evergreen.  Get a red dahlia behind it, a red echinacea or a coreopsis....yellow or red.....alongside it.  Or hackonochloa in front.......

Right now willmottianum is strutting it's stuff beautifully.  It is good in a pot as said but in the ground it makes a far bigger impact.

Grow many, many blue flowered plants....right now caryopteris in several varieties, campanulas, agastaches, verbena rigida, salvias in variety, linum perenne, and blue penstemon still in flower.  Did I say I like blue? 

HELLO FORKERS!
