Day Four 25 November 2020
On dreich November days we all need a little something to remind us of the sunshine. Today my contribution to Cathy’s Week of Flowers is a collecion of plants which will only flower when the sun comes out. It is still not to late to contribute, so why not visit Cathy’s Words and Herbs website and be inspired to spread a little sunshine and smiles.
These plants all grow outside and tolerate our wet and windy climate. The Bergeranthus is South African but is apparently hardy to -12C. The Oxalis ‘no name’ was grown from wild collected seed from Patagonia and is perfectly at home in the Outer Hebrides. I’m not sure I’ve named the Escholzia correctly (another lost label). It is perennial, very low growing and over time has developed a very woody stem. Perhaps someone can either confirm or correct the name for me please?
