    This diascia personata has been flowering all summer and brighter than it looks here. It has now teamed up with salvia Purple VelvetSalviaPurpleVelvetDiasciaPersonataSm.jpg
    Cobaea pringlei (perennial, hardy -ish) has taken over the garden, but is only now beginning to flower. Like @shiney 's cobaea scandens, there are loads of buds to come

    Mina lobata also took its time getting started

      I've now got 2 plants of the cobaea now, @CarolineL ,but must admit I'm struggling to find planting space so both are in pots and rooted through the bottom. :biggrin:

          Yes @pete it propagates very easily! This year it has gone ballistic, so be warned...

            This bloom is surprisingly in its second day ...
            Hibiscus Mandevilla 25 Sep 21.jpg

            Looking to the end of the garden with Bougainvilla (pink) on the left, Tecomaria starting to bloom centre (orange), Tecoma stans (yellow) right and peeking at the bottom Jatropha integerrima (pinky orange) ...

                              As we head into Autumn we start to get some colour. The Tecomaria capensis (Cape Honeysuckle) is starting to bloom. It is a bit of a nuisance actually as it roots wherever it touches the ground. We have three now, this is the original one at the bottom of the garden which is about 5 meters tall ...

                              Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender' with Balsam which has been blooming for months now ...

                                I realize that, and thank you, but I was laughing at the little faces with their mouths wide open :smile:

                                Lovely colour on the Plectranthus
