Wow!  That one makes me ask how shade-tolerant these PCs are.  --  Griff

Hi Gareth

Can we swap some of your rain for some of our drought?

Here?s a PC seedling from Ghio seed, that is a keeper.

It has been a terrible year for PCIs in Wairarapa, New Zealand.  We should be at the peak of the flowering season but the weather has conspired against us this year. We had a bad late frost and it has badly affected the stems on most of the PCIs.  They have a weak point just below the bud, and as they come up and start to flower they fall over.
We have also been having a period of bad winds (up to 140km predicted for tonight) so you can imagine what things look like - ripped petals and even some damaged foliage.

The rain associated with the windstorms hasn't been that kind to the flowers either.
Still, there are a few nice flowers out.  This is a seedling from open pollinated 'Sojourner'.  I have a number in this colour range from other breeding but they tend to be a bit pinker than this.

I'm hoping to have some more interesting flowers later on.
