Looking good now
The fat fists of silvery lilac buds on Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' have opened up to release an intense, sugary scent at the mouth of the Winter Garden.

Spanish Flag

This wonderful climber, Ipomoea lobata, which we grow as an annual seems to have been in full flower for months. The three-lobed foliage provides a fresh-green foil to the flowers, held on forked, chestnut brown flower stems. From each prong of this botanical dowsing rod the inflated flowers protrude unilaterally, vermillion and orange at the apex and turning creamier further down the stem, the colour combination giving rise to its common name of Spanish Flag.
