The Tea Rose has still got fresh growth but not yet any buds. Perhaps this little stranger is stronger and will take over. I do not mind, as it is such a pretty thing they used for the rootstock. It is scented as well.
All my "Dream Time" azaleas are flowering abundantly, the bushes are covered in these huge silvery pink flowers.
I like these old fashioned plants which have become the favourites of landscapers.
Nothing beats a Bougainvillea in full bloom covering a Verandah.
