Separate ingredients for the "P" Soup

Postby Lizcordysmum » Feb 20, 2009 2:47 pm

One of my favourite clematises...bought here at supermarket without a name and spent ages trying to find out...she is Pilu "Little Duckling"

Also, beautifully scented Phlox (I was pleased to get this, as I had been given some that were not scented and they were a disappointment

And finally, a red Peony...thought I'd taken pictures of poppies, but can't find a one!.

Pussy Willows at LONG LAST!!! Oh bless you Sheikea, bless you to pieces! Please and thank you...they are now my desktop...oh what BLISS!

I also am fond of Sugar Daddy...I like the pinks, but the pink with that would be perfect.

Scrapinthehat - I'm an very oldbe, but memory told me that phlox were all sweetly scented...a smell that reminded me so much of hot drowsy summer afternoons with bees buzzing...and it was a terrible disappointment to grow the phlox, stick my nose into it, and find no scent at all.

Then I got these pink ones, and yep! THAT'S the smell...the old smeller is still working just fine!

The Clematis is a stunner Liz. I've made a note of that one! I've decided that I can find room for another two clematis!!!!!
Phlox have never turned me on that much, mostly I think because of the mouldy ratty leaves. However, I really liked the colour of this one, so bought it. I'm going to have to give it a good sniff this, its 2nd, year.

BBQ, must be lucky weather for such a rainy place (not this year) but I do not get mouldy rotten leaves on the phlox, nor on the begonias.

I am extremely grateful...rose problems are enough, thank you!

I wish you good hunting for that clematis...was a poor little speciman, I bought it out of pity...first year I got a couple of single flowers, 2nd year I got ONE big double that was amazing and looked nothing like first year's singles (not even in colour/striping) and last year I got this loveliness, from ground up to 2nd floor porch ceiling. And it lasted and lasted.

Be careful, I have noted there are other Pilu s out there!
