The white impatiens are surprising me too this year. In the previous years, I have overlooked them for for expensive flowering plants...which never performed as well as I had hoped they would. This spring, I gave up with the flamboyantly priced plants and settled instead for the humble punnets of impatiens. Well. They have been nothing short of spectacular!
The white wisteria is always a delight...but you mustn't blink, or you might miss it. It's beautiful blooms do not last very long, but they are worth the wait until the next time they bloom, and they have a delicate perfume. It is entwined with a purple wreath vine, which looks a bit like a wisteria. and flowers just prior to, during the wisteria flowers, and long after the wisteria have faded. At it's peak (both flowers at the same time) it is breathtaking!
(white wisteria mixing it up with the purple wreath vine, also known as the 'sandpaper vine' as it's leaves have a feel of very fine sandpaper to them )
Just a update on that Fraser Island Creeper...it's flowers have now opened further so I thought I'd include some new shots of these blooms. I kept my hand in the photo so it is possible to see just how big the flowers really are. Huge huh?
