Not a great pic, but it will have to do. I don’t seem to have posted this before. The Stachyurus is getting ready to flower too #stachyurus #stachyuruspraecox #stachyurus-praecox

I saw this at Wisley a couple of years ago and vowed to get one, but I never did 😢😢 Another one for the wish list 👍

This is one of the best spring shrubs 😍😍😍 There's one at the university near me and it has such gorgeous flowers.

That’s exactly where I saw it too Barbara, outside the old house? It went straight on my wish list then. I managed to get this at Wisley a couple of years later in the shop. It had a lovely red colour last autumn 🍂 @jacaranda

Yes definitely Claudia - I’ve got about three flowering stems. Don’t think I’ll have any more this year, they have been hanging here for a few weeks now and I think the buds form in the previous autumn, hopefully will open over the next month or so @clipperty

I’ll see how easy it is to propagate Barbara - the books say seed or semi ripe cuttings, so I’ll see if I get any seed first, and if not I’ll try a cutting for you @jacaranda

Thanks Rich, that would be brilliant 😘 I was hoping to get to Wisley this week but we’re going away next Thursday and there’s just too much to do in the intervening 10 days 😢

Yes mine has several flowering stems... I tried taking cuttings last year - unsuccessful - you’ll probably strike luck Rich - (see what I did there?!) @jacaranda x x x

I just checked on the one at the university and it's at the same stage. Can't wait to see it 😍
