Post by pdid » Mon Mar 24, 2014 11:46 am

I thought I'd share a few early Spring pictures mainly macro's and individual plants.

Thanks, I'm keeping a close eye on the forecast.

I think you're talking about aralia bipinnata Ken.

You certainly have some very interesting plants.

What is the fern in the red pot? Some sort of Blechnum?

Your Daphniphyllum looks very healthy. Mine is slightly smaller and the latest leaves look stunted after the cold spring last year, but I am hoping that it will put on a decent flush of growth this year.

There was a thread on GOTE by Kev Spence. http://growingontheedge.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7113
And it was reasonably priced @ Crug.

Thanks Adam, yes it's a Blechnum Gibbum.

The Daphniphyllum is in a really sheltered spot and was only planted last year, it's looking like it's going to branch so either it or another plant near it will require moving in the not too distant future

Don't worry.... I only whispered it.

Never make a loud pronouncement for one of these. They'll be dead before the day's out icon_aaargh
