How have you found this plant Barbara? I've bought a packet of seed - variety 'Apache Sunset', which is a red version. Bit of an impulse buy I'm afraid - don't know much about the plant! lol

I love it - but last year's died in the winter, and I grew some from seed. I shall wait and see what they do this winter. At least I know that they are easily grown, Sid! I like the apricot ones. They are about 18" tall,and they've flowered for ages.

Oh, well that reasuring then Barbara, thanks. It looks very pretty on the packet - that's what reeled me in lol Last winter was very hard - I hope your plants fair better this winter - as well as everything else!

Thanks, Sid. I've brought my Cymbidiums in after hearing tonight's forecast, and I think I'll gather all the Coprosmas up by the greenhouse, ready to put them in...it does appear that the temps are going to fall rapidly!

Looking at your pics of agastache Spritz they remind me of elongated Monarda..with those little tubular bits all down the stem instead of on top! I bought some seeds couple years ago, then lost the greenhouse to storage because of some work we had carried out..think I might give them a go, nothing to lose and lots to gain by look of your pics!

Interesting to see your remark about the weather, exactly 12 months ago...

The apricot ones certainly have to be treated as annuals - but they're well worth growing. If i can get hold of seeds I'll grow more next spring.

Hmmm..maybe I make a better forecaster than some others I could mention! LOL.
