I hope all you lovely mums are enjoying your day so far. I’ve just received a lovely flower arrangement that had this lovely flower in it as a filler. I would be happy if someone could identify it as I think I’d like to grow one in the garden for future arrangements.

 

Thanks💐

    They are Australian and not hardy in this country.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Thank you, looks like they need Mediterranean type growing conditions, full sun, well drained. Might be worth a try in a pot to shelter over winter.

  • @Bright star : They look lovely! *I'd be tempted to take a few 'tip' cuttings & see if they will strike in a moist  sand/peat 50/50 mix in a tray or small pots on a sunny windowledge? Nothing to loose by trying, eh? Best of luck with your gardening in 2021.
