So only 2 of our many Callistemon survived the winter of 2008/09. Even the fabled Woodlanders clone succumbed to the cold, snow & ice. Callistemon sieberi however survived unscathed & doesn't even have any damaged foliage. The other survivor was Callistemon citrinus 'Splendens' - OK I cheated on this one it was in a pot in the greenhouse :^)..

Silverbells & Snowbells

Tis the season for Silverbells & Snowbells. Two of the best in our garden this week are Stryax obassia & Halesia diptera var. magniflora.
