2018 – CHW
A few new things and oddments in flower at Burncoose today:
Phymosia umbellata is a new conservatory plant to us. An odd bud formation and quite an attractive autumn flower? I have never seen this before.
Along the way I find a lovely Hoya carnosa with its flowers dripping in nectar in the greenhouse. A good addition to the existing care article for hoyas as we stop to film it and its last year’s cuttings which are growing on well.
Camellia sinensis is out in the greenhouse as a small plant bought from France last year. Its flowers exactly match the old plant on Burns Bank which has reshot from the base and not flowered for a bit. This is however much earlier into flower than I remember.

We looked at Cladastris lutea (kentuckea) a week or two ago. Its leaves are dropping already but are a picture of pure yellow in the sun today. When will this USA tree be big enough to flower?
