        Might have been able to help if they were fatter and five foot like a loofah with blue seeds :thinking: I wonder if @Gail_68 knows?

          Well if the silliness is over from certain members..... ( not mentioning any names Tetters and Verdun ).

          Have a look at Callistemon @Loubielouy . It's commonly known as the bottlebrush plant.

                You lot! I hope she doesn't leave thinking we are all unwelcoming :sad:
                I don't know the answer, but welcome :sign0016:, hopefully someone can answer your question, I'm thinking it's probably callistemom :)

                  @Loki , I was just having the same sort of thoughts. Probably another member who won't bother coming back. We seem to be losing quite a few lately.

                      Well, not really accurate. We have a couple of members who have contacted Admin and explained that they are taking a break but will return. and one member who has left after becoming slightly aggressive and indirectly threatening. We are a very friendly gang willing to help all members whether new or long standing.

                      But it does not help when we criticise members by name when they're acting on very little information and one who hasn't even offered any advice or help.........that will give new members the idea that we are not the friendly forum that we actually are.:dunno:

                        Hi loublelouy....warm welcome :)

                        As already mentioned, a photo would be good. We should be able to identify it then.
                        Look forward to seeing the photo:)

                          Personally I didn't understand the question, let alone come up with an answer.;):biggrin:

                          Not being unkind, just thought it was a hoax.

                            Hi @Loubielouy :sign0016: to GC :)

                            You must mean callistemom "Bottlebrush plants" and they're classed as standards in 3ft in height.
