        Grevillea victoriae growing outside at National Botanic Garden of Wales. Apparently has survived -10 C winter without problems, despite clay soil and lots of rain (Wales). Currently being crowded by lots of self-seeded dierama.

        One of my Nerines. I lost the label in my house move...

                  Hi @Victoria , is that Ipomea really that blue in real life. I know some colours are hard to photograph. That is a stunning colour.

                    Yes @KFF, it is. To be honest, I find it a bit peculiar. :rolleyespink: The two pictures were taken shortly apart, the Petunia is in the shade, the Morning Glory in morning sun. Here is the packet pic from Premier Seeds ...

                    PS Just editing this to put another further away pic ... still glowy!

                      Some plants are still surviving and giving us some colour. As it was very overcast my old camera was having trouble getting clear shots

                          Cyclamen are happy - we have them all over the garden.

                          This Silybum was also not planted. We removed a very large Viburnum and cleared the ground and dug it over on the 10th July! We have now removed it

                            We wondered why an Agapanthus wasn't flowering with the others about a month ago. Reason was … its a Nerine.
