Zauschneria californica


Zauschneria californica (Zauschneria californica (Californian fuchsia))

Welcome colour for late autumn, but a bit of a thug, I find.

I suppose a bit in some ways, Ll. Lower growing, though, and smaller flowers.

what a stunner, i love it ~ is it a little bush or an alpine?

13 Nov, 2010

 

More like a little bush, I suppose, Sticki - it does send out runners, though. I've tried to pot them up, with only one successful attempt out of many. I'll have another try at some point and let you know if I succeed., if you'd like a piece?

13 Nov, 2010

 

Yes, still quite a lot in flower. :-))

It would be nice to see what it looks like now...the garden I mean. Any wider shots?

13 Nov, 2010

13 Nov, 2010

 

Hmmm...a bit messy to do that, Karen. I'll see.

No promises, Sticki - but I will try. :-)

Do you? That's good, as I can take it or leave it, to be honest - it isn't my favourite by a long way, but useful at this time of year. :-)

14 Nov, 2010

27 Jul, 2015

 

Yes - I can't get rid of it, to be honest...

28 Jul, 2015

 

Oh you are not keen then?

29 Jul, 2015

 

No, because it works its way under other plants and doesn't stay where I want it! Grrr...
