Like Jackie, and probably a lot more of you out there, I love T. Rex. This was only planted out about 4 or 5 years ago. It's beside the greenhouse and does a great job of shading what's inside from the midday sun. Usually earlier on in the season I take off one or two of the more mature to let light in for my tomatoes. But I'm so impressed with the size of its leaves in such a short space of time. 

But in saying that, my tree lily hasn't appeared at all this year. So I'm assuming the T. Rex's prolific growth has been the cause of this. C'est la vie. Just got Heritage Bulbs catologue in during the week so I can always order another one or two.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.

It is a great size, Jacinta. Bulb madness time is starting.
