Sunday puzzler: April 16
Happy Easter and my apologies for the lack of posts for the past week. Things have been busy to put it mildly. But, with a bit more effort, posts will be more regular now.
But, a different puzzle for this Easter Sunday.
Can you work out the reason for this rather low-growing rhododendron? It looks like a ‘Yak’ (Rhododendron yakushimanum hybrid), but has a really prostrate habit. Can you guess why?
Is it a prostrate sport?
Is it environmental – ie. wind?
Or is it pruning?
In the meantime, a celebration of green:
Hostas after rain
Polygonatum with raindrops
The fresh foliage of Matteuccia struthiopteris
We know you have been on the move, so we forgive you 🙂 Missed it last week, though. We suggest a prostrate sport – perhaps limbo dancing? 🙂
Thank you – lots more upheaval to go yet. All I will say is that the habit was not the result of anything the plant itself wanted to do!
good to have you back Geoff . happy Easter to you to . bit disappointed no krispy kreams this weekend fingers crossed for tomorrow lol . I will guess on environmental
Thank you. Bad news about the krispy kremes! was working at the garden centre today – not overly busy but plenty of questions.
