a new flower has appeared
I moved in to a house 10 years ago with a keen gardener ex owner who kindly left me a few potted plants as he said he couldn't take them to his retirement flat. This particular plant was too big for its pot and I moved it on about 8 years ago, wasn't the most beautiful however it filled and gap and I liked it when no leaves were on it. This week I was walking around and this flower had appeared and there are more buds. Firstly what is it and secondly why after 8 years has it only now decided to flower, my obvious answer is weather, but surely it's not a simple as that.
