This Hardenbergia has been in for 12 months and seems to really like its new home. And the marbled camellia is still going (Pokie, I'd better take back anything nasty I said about it before... :lol: )

Lovely photo Luzy.Your Hardenbergia looks much better behaved and more artistic looking that our rather scruffy and neglected looking purple one. High time I fixedour front area up and gave it a better chance. Perhaps just taking your photo out and showing it to ours might inspire it to greater things?? :wink: No... I thought not... more real work needed... :oops:

Looks fantastic Luzy :D

The grey/green foliage of the Hardenbergia looks great against the pink of the Camellia flowers!

Thank you, you're all really kind. Chris, at the moment the flowers seem to be weighing the plant down - before the buds formed I seemed to be forever untangling it from the letter box (just out of shot) AND the camellia. No doubt it'll start its attacking moves again soon... :roll:
