My white oleander is finally in bloom. It reminds me of our vacations in the South of Europe. Although it is a mediterrean shrub it needs a lot of water in Summer. They can be pruned into small tree’s.
It is so hot here at the moment but rain is on the way.
My garden is suffering at the moment, it has been hot and dry for quite a while now, not a drop of rain and my garden is not used to this sort of weather, I water my garden once every 2 or 3 days for as long as we are alloud to do so, some provinces in my country already have heavy water restrictions. I managed to take a few pictures of plants who still look good. A lot of plants and bushes have scorched leafs and look tatty.
CROCOSMIA LUCIFER IN BUD,ALSO CALLED MONTBRETIA, this one will be bright red when in full bloom.
SEMPERVIVUM WITH FLOWER STALK
HIBISCUS SYRIACUS WHITE CHIFFON
BUDLEIA DAVIDII EMPIRE BLUE OR BUTTERFLY BUSH
NEREUM OLEANDER SOEUR AGNES
But I am not complaining, my cacti and succulents are thriving at the moment.
I finally found a white oleander, it is a small one but I hope it’ll grow. All I could find in the plant centers were red or pink oleanders but I love white flowers just a little more than other colours. Oleander is a potplant in my country.
