Some good spring colour. I wish my simple camera could capture the real colour of Plumbago indica. The colour is more coral/salmon pink. I have to keep it under cover over winter and it looses its leaves. I put the pot out in spring close to other plants so the lack of leaves is less noticeable - here next to Salvia 'Phyllis' Fancy'
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0°C. Summer temperatures up to 40°C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Love the Alyogyne - such prettily arranged petals as well as a beautiful colour. Unfortunately not been successful with them here....

I snapped the Alyogyne in the local plant nursery I don't think they actually produce the plants them selves so I don't know if any have been successfully grown here either

Wonderful bright colors Hilary. I admire the fact that you keep notes for your photos. I always make notes and put them in safe places. Luckily my IPad photographs are dated automatically and I don't have to worry so much.
