    We have Dawn which is in flower at the moment and the smell is fantastic.:yes: If mine appears to be getting a bit out of hand I give it a light pruning and that usually sorts it out.:biggrin:

    WHAT'S LOOKING GOOD IN DECEMBER 2018

    Spanish Moss, Tillandsia usneoides was named by the first botanists to classify it due to it's similarity to (or reminded them of) that species of lichen which is Usnea.

    Perennial ground cover to underplant shady tree.

    Soil beneath trees tends to be on the dry side so what about Tiarella. There's Tiarella "Running Tiger" which has white flowers and flowers from May to August and can be grown in partial to full...

    A Bit of Housekeeping

    The acres look stunning. Its a tree that we have never had success at growing. Probably due to our south facing location and being on limestone.

    Which plants were truly outstanding in your garden in 2018?

    Tithonias did well as did Salvia coccinea, but the stand out performers were the Ipomea and Mina lobata that grew, flowered and climbed all over the place, they kept going until well into October.
