      My other Fatsia Spiders Web like yours @wiseowl is also in flower.

      Alstroemeria Indian Summer is still flowering well.

      Passiflora Lavander has gone mad this Autumn and still has loads of buds.

      Heuchera Electric Lime.

      Cordyline Cha Cha, these relatively new 'clump' forming varieties are not as hardy as advertised, Cordyline Can Can was killed off by frosts last year. This one will need some protection.

      30p Chrysanth from B&Q a few years ago, nice colour for late in the year.

          Some gorgeous plants folks.
          Fatsias are not planted as often as they should be....very underrated foliage plants

            The fatsia looks an attractive plant Crocus say it grows to 4m. I take it the ones in the photos are fairly young.

              Most of our plants outside are dead because we have hit freezing a few times.

              I notice that there are lots of pine cones in the tops of the trees and the chestnut, walnut and oak trees have been putting out heavier loads of nuts than in the past few years.

              Looks great. But it usually means we're in for a longer colder winter than usual :doh:

                Gary, another statistic that is a tad misleading I think. Most fatsias are relatively slow growing and far less than 4 metres tall. Besides judiciously pruned they can be kept much smaller.:)
                As Canadian Lori said prolonged freezing temps can be fatal but in cold areas fleece will protect them :)

                  My Fatsias, japonica variegata and the two Spiders Webs have both suffered scorch due to hard frosts and temps of -7c a couple of times but have recovered quickly, they have only been in the ground three years.

                    not quite so good now but S.Leucanthemum is still flowering, all way back from early July. This will have another week or two then will be cut back and divided......divisions already claimed !

                      I keep mine in a large pot. Brought it with me from my previous house (and I've been here 3 1/2 years now).
                      Never covered it or pampered it, but, just like yours and woo's it is in flower again this year and there are signs of a new plant growing at the base :yes:
                      I have noticed there is one growing in the ground a few gardens down - it has a wide spread, full of flowers but still hasn't reached fence height. I'm guessing it had been there a good few years before I arrived too.

                                My local beach was looking fantastic this morning. The towans lit up by a full moon that also magically illuminated the sea :). No wind either. Wonderful start to the day :rasp:
                                Bit chilly....freezing in the east of the county but here prob about 6 or 7 degrees. Clear sky that promises some sunshine later:SUNsmile:
                                Have good day folks:)
