Thanks Kasy!
They seem very unusual this year Kasy - I can't find any in the garden centres/nurseries to extend my small collection.

Where do you keep all these Meanie? Greenhouse am presuming!

Tricytis are fully hardy Lulu, best gown in a shady spot with some moisture.

I'd say mostly hardy - a couple were hit hard this winter (T.hirta and my favourite, "Taiwan Adbane").

Love the photo, Meanie...did you get up in the middle of the night to get it? :))

14 Aug, 2011

 

No - took it at about six in the evening. Camera was on manual setting and I used the flash - adjusted correctly it will give you the night effect.

Ah! It is a great effect...sadly, 'freebies' don't go that far...
