      Acer Orange Dream opening up and survived two frosts without damage, not so lucky with the Actinidia kolomikta and Alstroemeria Indian Summer again.

              The Oxalis is still performing,
              maybe the weak feed of Miraclegrow is helping?

                      My dracaena has decided to flower, it not a spectacular flower but after dark the scent is really strong.

                        Isn't it often the case, though, that an unspectacular flower has scent to compensate? Look at Cestrum! Datura blows that theory right out of the water....:roflol:

                          I think the bloom is from the Iochroma above.
