This is my most precious cutting.
It's growing new leaves so fingers crossed that it has taken.
Can anyone guess what it is?
Yes, Tina, but that's the only hint you're getting :)
Hmmmm that's a nice downey leaf. Peculiar looking stem. Will watch and learn.
I wont know if it is exotic but hope it roots for you.
Havnt a notion,best of luck with it
I'll keep my mouth shut :)
Your Amicia cuttings appear to have taken too, unlike mine :(
It surprisingly is a member of the pea family, Amicia or also known I think as Sun Flower
Jesus Bruno, you're good! You recognised the Amicia zygomeris from that photo! Well, if it grows for me, you know where to get cuttings next year ;-) And we know that YOU know what the main cutting is!
Fran, Bruno is talking about the plant behind. The identity of my precious is still open for guessing ;-)
OK worth a try LOL, but I was really testing Bruno, should have known better :-)))))
Suffering from verbal diarrhea once again.................
Ooh, a good guess, Elizabeth. The leaves are similarly soft and fluffy. But, no!
Tell you what...if your "precious cutting" doesn't root, I'll swap you a rooted one for an Amicia cutting ;-) Mine has sent up a couple of suckers and I could easily be tempted to swap one for an Amicia. BTW, mine has recently sent up flower spikes and the whole thing is looking very Ligularia-like.
Fran, be warey of this one....I grow it so it must mean it's invasive LOL
Bruno, I was at a Gardening Clinic the other night, the were installing Micro Chips to help folk stop buying plants, they said they would build one for me in connection with Invasive Plants, I do hope the warning shock this chip gives is not too strong.............. LOL
It sounds like a good deal, Bruno. I do only have one Amicia cutting at the moment though so you'll have to wait a bit :)
My lips are sealed :-) Mine is nice and cosy in the glasshouse --- I saw one flowered in Wales and have to say I did not fancy it. The leaves though were very impressive and were huge
OK time up. I was giving all the others time to prove thenselves, it's a Califorinia Geranium better know as Senecio Petasites.
One that's on my wish list, I do hope that the Hint was subtle, a great plant ;-))
Fran has it! I am surprised that one so tender is on your Wish List! I have loved this one from afar for awhile so fingers crossed that it won't be from so far away soon if it strikes.
Rachel, for a minute I thought you meant I was tender !!!!!
Hosta, while your lips were sealed, I'm glad your fingers were free,
Shush ......... not a word to anyone ;-))
Not a word Fran, not a word :-))
I wonder is there twickewy afoot!
'' I know nothing '' LOL
You may well think that Rachel, but I couldn't possibly comment :-))
Margaret, you really shouldn't encourage one so tender and impressionable as Fran!
These corkoians can lead anyone astray!!
God I'm sorry I missed this discussion, firstly well spotted Bruno, Rachel you never told me you got a hold of Amicia Zygomeris !! you kept that quiet... will have to be extra nice to you next year if I want to try a cutting LOL
All the boys want to be my friend now :D
