    I popped a seed in a pot in August and forgot about it, now I have an inch high satsuma plant.

        Paraserianthes lophantha flowering, the plants overwintered on the allotment last winter and have grown pretty tall.

          Don't you just love the way plant names trip off the tongue ( or keyboard) :-) Do you have extra-long labels in Kent? ;-)

            Only use labels for seedlings, after that if I don't remember the name its probably not worth growing.:biggrin:

              Well, I'm not sure about using the common name Gotta Pea :rolleyespink: but Plume Albizia is okay.

                  Are you sure that's Podranea, Victoria? The flowers look very like Pandorea. My seed-raised Podranea finally got the boot last week as the flowers were a crude pink with darker stripes. Going to gamble on a Pandorea jasminoides in it's place!

                        So I'm obviously growing the one with the "crude" pink flowers.:biggrin:

                        But I do see your point regarding Victorias.

                          Just my humble opinion, pete ;-) If I'd never seen Pandorea, I'd still be growing Podranea :-)
