Re: Flowers

Hi Frida,
Page 21 is a fair ways back, going to take some time reviewing.
Thanks for IDing the little Violet flower and smaoke bush, the sample I have is an out door plant in the ground.
Attached another sample of it.

Re: Flowers

It would depend on the climate... In Toronto it is an indoor plant (maybe - 12 C right now?), but I have propagated it before to use as a "filler" in my garden, and grows through the summer. It doesn't bloom though, as an old indoor plant did years ago.

The Smoke Bush just goes dormant outdoors for the winter, after its leaves turn colour in the fall and exhibit outstanding patterns!

I remember my mother's garden in Argentina, with Poinsettias growing all the way up to the roof, like young trees, blooming each summer... Here they are cultivated to be a Christmas item only...

Re: Flowers

Hi Frida,
Poinsettias grow really well over here, used to have a large tree in the front garden in Sydney.
