I've just looked this up on the internet ...
... lovely desert plant ...
I like the name Fairy Duster ..
What size are the flower heads on this one ?

22 Dec, 2012


Somewhere between an inch and inch and half Terra but the bush is loaded with these . Very popular landscape shrub and bees and humingbirds love it.
Glad you are liking it

It has some seedpods about 3" long Shirlwhirl. I do not think we can grow it in my country or yours. It likes it hot and dry. Too much rain on Vancouver Island.

Thanks Vivek .

Hi Klahanie, that is such a pretty name - is it a real name or your ID for GOY?
If it is not a real name, it ought to be!! I love it.

It is my screen name Shirlwhirl. My real name is not so exotic :-)
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Ah I see Klahanie, - Shirlwhirl is my ID - really Shirley, but most people call me Shirl, so I am mostly known by that!
All the best for 2013 to you and all your family also.
