A garden flower photo (diosma hirsula)

Comments on this photo


Diosma Hirsula... I refer to it as little pink stars, to distinguish between this and another plant I have....uh...bigger white stars. (As you may be able to tell, I am not a technically minded gardener!.....yet)

This was a small shrub when I first planted it in a container a couple of years ago and it's looking a bit leggy. I think I should have cut it back....i'll do a google, unless any of you 'old hands' are able to tell me... many thanks.

Hi TT... yes I have! They were the first flowers to appear in my pots this year...Sunblest kindly ID'd them for me as Spring Starflower (Ipheion Uniflorum)... I have uploaded a photo to My Garden if you want to see them...I can't wait till Clematis's's's's's start to come out and I can snap them too...

P.S. The photo of your path is just wonderful....Have you seen the pic of Spritz's steps? soooo beautiful... it has just given me an idea... to create a dream garden from members' photos.... Spritz's steps lead up to your path then on to??? ...well that's as far as I have got so far, because it only just occurred to me!!

I'm pleased you like my photo of my front path with aubrieta...
I guess we'd reach FourSeasons's's's's's's lovely waterfalls somewhere in that dream garden. Lol.

I'll go hunting for your Ipheion Uniflorum...
