That's gorgeous Sheilabub....I have the same one - the buds are just about open.

Me, too, but the buds are still tight shut. I love this shrub.

Lovely!

I love it too. I took mine out last year. I had planted it in completely the wrong spot. Perhaps I will find a place for a new one some time...surely one of the most romantic shrubs in the world!

Thank you Scottish, Oji, Mel and Karen! Ours has only been in flower for two or three days - seemed late this year.

Yeah, same as everything! I've just put the heating on ....seriously, it has got cold again in my house. Flipping weather :(

Great photo..I tried a picture of one the other day but it was far to windy.

Thanks Pimm's. Windy here too . . . I never realised before how rarely conditions are "just right" for a pic!

This is much nicer than the one I took pictures of. The one I took has less attractive petals and does not have that little magenta tinge.

Gracious - the only thing I noticed was the fragrance! I hadn't noticed the tinge . . . you DO have acute vision Pimm's :))

Btw, would you like a Plumbago seedling??

That would be very nice Sheila :))

Scared of missing something my Ma used to say !!

I will post a picture, they are quite different...... I bet mine is something else. Doh.
