Just to prove me a liar there was somebody at church with a large pot of White (small flowers) Chrysanthemums at a mnimosino.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

I just tried to send a post. It looked like the photo had attached but when I hit "post", neither the message nor the photo was sent. I got the error message which read:

"Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow.

Please consult your server administrator for more information"


It was not too big and it attached, or appeared to do so, in normal time. Do we have an administrator still?
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

SHADES OF PINK, FLOWERS AT KALAMBAKA REST STOP
October 2011

I make cards, using some of these flower photos, to give as presents. The photo which causes the most feedback is this two toned Dahlia

Hilary, the two tone dahlia is unusual so it captures ones attention.  We visited our local Nursery today  and there were lots of  Chrysanthemum/i]. I love the ones that look like their name ( gold flowers) especially when the sunlight plays on them. We bought leucophylla to replace some other plants on our hedge.

I looked up Leucophylla but what came up didn't look like anything you would buy for your hedge
Do you have a photo of it?

Slight technical hitch on Charithea's posting, Hilary. The plants are Leucophyllum frutescens.
Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.
