Fantastic :)

I have never grown the Gloriosa but I am thinking they would survive the summer. Do they come in other colors commercially?It has been a great summer here for the Trumpets and even some of the Asiatics are doing ok. So many weeds though and overgrowth from shrubs.

Thanks Beth, Alistair and Mark and Gaz for the nice comments.

Hi Clayton,

I believe they do come in other colors. The other two that I know that are commercially available are Grenii and luteum.

Same here, lots of weeds and I have spent hours yesterday weeding as I am off work. After the drought we got lots of rain, which really helped a lot of my plants. I have a few lilies blooming as of now. It has been a weird summer.

Hello Andrea,

I am alright and busy as always. Fall is here and this is the time to do all the garden chores. I have some planting to do before I can start my fall clean up. BTW, the big tree was cut down yesterday and my garden look so open. Glad that one is done. :)
