Newman and Redford, almost enough to distract me from plants 

Been to the long distance GC today, on the other side of town. Was looking for Verbascums and Echinacea but sticky label syndrome was rife, and I had to trek all the way home with a Physocarpus Diable D'or, Penstemons  Sour Grapes  and Heavenly Blue,  Iris Carnival Time and Geum  Totally Tangerine X2 all in 3lt pots 


My name is Winter and I am a plant-a-holic

I bought the same lupin on Thursday. Great minds ...

It's an incredible bi-colour of purple and red which makes it look maroon, although mine cost 10 pounds, 2 pounds off for not being watered 

I'm putting mine next to something orange as well,  maybe we should all do the same combo and have a dedicated CB thread next year?

Is this a type of ceanothus

Yes yes and no
Yes to Ceanothus 
Yes to a pink version 
No to pink buds turning blue
