There HAS to be a twelve step program out there..................
Mad, you mentioned loripetalum in there somewhere? Have you got any
advice? How big does it get, what kind of soil and location suits it?
I'd never seen one until very recently when a DIY "shed" put some out
in the plant section which often has cheap lots of doomed plants but you
know how it is, sometimes you just can't resist. It's got pretty purple
red leaves and the label pic shows little red spikey flowers like
hamamelis.It also says "requires some winter protection" .
I've planted it in a nooky sort of corner between two huge rocks, with
sun, but it could be moved.
