Trachelospermum Autumn Colour

Dave HumbyDave Humby Posts: 1,115

We have two of the above planted adjacent to one another on a south facing end of the summerhouse. One has put on a tremendous display of autumnal colour whereas the other is staying put with its summer clothes. I've not noticed this contrast, or indeed, the rather splendid colour before. They were in-situ when we purchased the property but I'm wondering if they are slightly different strains?

    Sometimes it happens when the plant is stressed or when the temperatures are dipping quite low. Since you mention two plants, it is very possible that the plant on the left may have stress in the root area. Possible excess damp around the roots, or have become restricted. I don't think there are strains, but maybe an example of how two closely planted climbers can behave in totally different ways. Looks lovely right now.
