Is orange the new Yellow?
I'd like to think I'm a man of simple tastes.
So it was 12 months ago that I decided I wanted a yellow Hibiscus. Nothing fancy, just a hibiscus with a simple yellow flower like the one on the label below.
After 12 months of waiting, fertilizing, watering, mulching, etc, etc, what do I get?
A bright burnt Orange bloody monstrosity.
How hard is it these days to get a simple yellow flowering Hibiscus?
On a brighter note the Lettuce 'drunken woman' and 'Red leprechaun', from the 'A lovely surprise' post, planted last Sunday came up after just four days.
The photo here is taken seven days after planting.
I love Camellias as well and this one is flowering particularly well at the moment.
That's it for Sunday, catch you next time.
Cheers and happy gardening
