It has been very hard to keep my plants healthy over the winter and partifularly Spring season 2012. We are in a real drought situation, with still nor rain & hot summer weather. The stunning ‘Toothbrush’ flower grows on this large shrub and professes to flower most of the year. I am looking forward to it growing and am giving it plenty of T.L.C.
We also had a plague of flying beetles, never seen before clouds of the little critters who covered many of my white an pale blossomed plants and sucked the life out of the flowers with in a matter of a couple of days. They hung around until the weather really started to warm up and now there are just a few that fly around the lights at night.
