“I just couldn’t resist them – ‘So Exquisite’ (above) is most aptly named – one of its parents is the rocket pincushion. As the flowers age they darken and look as if they are about to explode into space (below).”
‘Carnival Red’ (Below) is the most wonderful colour….
“…and the China flower (Adenandra uniflora) has been on my must-have list for ages, so I am thrilled to have found some plants at the Kirstenbosch nursery.”
