Okay! Now what is a STELATTA???
I feel really dumb about all this....RSP and STELATTA....I am learning two new things this A.M.
Lovely Lovely Lovely, my dear.

Naomi: a Stellata is a type of Magnolis with a white flower with spindly petals. RSP - rampant sweet pea.

We once had a pink Japanese anemone in a corner of our garden, which gave us a lovely splash of colour from midsummer until the first frost. The problem is that it is a thoroughly invasive plant and increases in area every year.Worthwhile, but has to have an eye kept on it. Regards, Mike.

Mike: yes I have discovered that, as it was here when we came in '85 but I have managed to encourage it in a bed that gets all next door's bramble and ground elder -and anything's better than that:)

I would LOVE to have sweet peas! Alas, the growing season here is short as the heat just kills them off!

Kanani: that's a shame. It's so nice to cut them and have them fragrance the house.
