Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo'

Posted: 23/02/2014 at 18:40

Diablo doesn't look exactly alive right now.  For me it is a,very hardy non suckering shrub. I cut mine down hard Annually so mine looks dead at moment.  

Just wait  for a couple of weeks or so ...or even now look for signs of budding. 

Diablo is a bush I can't decideof I like it or not.  Brown leaves?  A hardy geranium, Ann folkard, foregrounds it and sets it off but purple cotinus is better.

I will contribute cash.  For members on the forum affected by losses this winter I can help with rooted plants.

Tracey, you can only join the hellebore club if you send one of them to me.  Those  are the rules  See? 

I was tempted by some hellebores ....candy love.....yesterday.  Bit different to Lenten roses.  I can see myself yielding to temptation tomorrow....I have to drive past the GC in the morning.  

Apart from the wind it's not been a bad day here.  Got some potting up done.  So far everything looks fine with no winter losses so space is limited.  Got to start serious plantIng soon

No wouldn't use aluminium either. ,polystyrene for me too.  Most shops, stores would have polystyrene packaging to give away I think.  Or local GC as in broken polystyrene trays etc.
