                Still got the remnants of summer holding on like others have.

                          This must be this plant's 4th flowering for this year.
                          Its actually a darker pink than it appears in the picture, calliandra surinamensis.

                              @pete Is your Calliandra in the ground or a pot? I have to over winter mine in the greenhouse as it doesn't like temperatures below 5c min. Labels say much higher.

                                Its in a pot, and I thought I'd probably lose it last winter, pushed under the staging in a greenhouse barely above freezing for most of December.
                                It surprised me, it survived, and with a pot on it was slightly neglected out on the allotment for the first part of summer, where it flowered once, then I increased watering and it just kept coming.
                                Its loaded with buds now and still outside, but the rain ruins the flowers.
