My that is impressive... wish mine did the same :roll: Very nice Bulbinella. They are one plant that I always admire, even when we are driving I can spot them from 100 paces. :lol:

thanks Midg and Mr W,

whenever I look at this plant while it's flowering I can see why their other common name is Torch Lily as this one really does stand out like a
'shining' torch in my garden. I just love the colour of it.

I've come close to death when spotting plants in the car. I've been banned form driving by my partner :oops: .

The kniphofia's lovely. One of my favourites too!

:lol: :lol: :lol: me too :!: :!: :!: I tend to let my husband do the driving for the exact same reason, but he prefers it that way because I can't keep my eyes on the road, too busy looking at plants and gardens :lol: :lol: :lol:

thanks everyone :!:
