This is flowering in my garden now, December, however blooms are a lot.smaller than this picture. Adds winter colour and screens an ugly fence in summer so earns it's keep.
I've had my bodnantese for probably 30plus years. It's been growing perfectly in semi shade well drained soil (neutral) not particularly rich. however it has decided to die on me. Like us do trees have a life span? And is 35years old age for this particular tree?
