If that’s destroyed it must be totally terrific. It looks great now. It’s cold here. Cold and wet. I dislike days when I can’t get outside

Just beautiful Kerry! When do yours set buds? In the fall or spring?

39w
comment
kez001uk

@gjones thank you 💜 these set buds in autumn. Seems like a pretty resilient plant but suffered in the heat last summer so was surprised it flowered at all

39w
comment
gjones

Why I was wondering is; I told you I ordered one but if all rhodos set buds in the autumn, won't mine freeze and fall off with our cold winters?

39w
comment
kez001uk

@gjones they should be ok, I read they’re hardy to -15. Think the only real issue with the buds is lack of water in winter

I was cleaning up some flower beds this afternoon. Lots of plants are green, shrubs have buds, new growth on many plants, only lost 2 plants to harsh winter (so far) and there's even a few bulbs blooming. We're in for 4 days of nasty weather- rain, strong winds and even a chance of snow😣 It has been really warm here 16 to 22C so hopefully it'll just be rain.

39w
comment
kez001uk

@gjones that’s great! It’s all coming back to beautify your land 😁 losing 2 plants after all the snow you had isn’t too bad I guess. Which ones were they? I do hope it’s not snow 😜🤞🏻 we’ve just had a warm spell but in for some thunderstorms and winds until early next week. Hope it’s nothing too bad but gives me a chance to get some seedlings potted on ☺️

@ublaszko this is the stinky lemon one that smells like furniture polish 😂 has pretty lilac flowers but bought it at the end of its flowering period so never seen it look at its best

Sounds great! The lemony scent that is. 😉 Looks like it's happy where it is so it will reward you with lots of flowers next year. 👍 My one has slightly larger leaves and they're not as round as this one's. It's pouring down so I haven't been out to smell the leaves yet.

@ublaszko hope yours has the same scent, think you’d like it 😋 yours looks like a proper dwarf rhododendron. Mine more like an azalea 😕 I love the flowers on yours 😍

That's what I was thinking. The leaves on yours look like an azalea. You're right! 👍 Thanks for enjoying the flowers of my rhododendron. I'm warming up to it 😅 I thought they looked wishy washy at first but then I bought my Japanese acer with bright red new growth and they go well together 😂 @kez001uk
