Wow, that's so pretty, Spider Lily! :D Your fuschia looks so good - as do your cyclamens :shock: Are they in the ground?

One more question: do you call that lovely ground cover Aluminium Plant, or am I thinking about somthing different?

Thanks Thee, Luzy and Comeilotei!

Thee, I am not sure of the name of the Fuschia. I did look it up once but I have since forgotten :oops: . I think it may be time to look it up again.

Luzy, I think it is called Aluminium plant but am not 100% on that. The tag says Lamium White Nancy. I bought it because I love the colour of the foliage and it has spread nicely. Other than that I don't know much else about them.
Do you know anything about them? Are they a pest?

Looks great in hanging baskets, and YES it can get out of control, keep your :shock: on it. Still pops up in my garden after 15 years of trying to get rid of it :cry: :cry:

Wow, what a fancy name - White Nancy 8) My mum had (has?) some - not as pretty as yours though - and while it spread it was also easy to pull out when she wanted a space for something else. She's near Sydney, maybe it behaves differently Melbourne-way?
