Has anybody noticed their Agaphantus has died over the winter? Everything else in the garden has surfaced now and in some cases are starting to really shoot on, except for my two Agaphantus (or is it Agaphantii???). Lillies, Allium, Amaryllis and foxgloves are all well up. Does anyone know should there be movement with the Agaphantus yet or am I just being impatient?

I have three libertia clumps, two are alive, one got completely hammered.

I also lost my Callistemon - no surprise there...?

My Azara's, Ceanothus, large-leaved Hebes and Libertia's have all been badly hit or are gone and the Escalonia's that have been struggling for the last couple of year's have had it .........
Oh well at least that opens up gaps for new plantings!

escallonia is the victim of a fungus disease on the foliage. escallonia was always so reliable and so adaptible.

Has anyone lost their verbena bonariensis plants this winter ? Mine all look rather sad and dead, much as they do every year I suppose, but should I expect to see some signs of life by now ?

None of my clumps - and I have numerous - have surfaced yet.

I am hoping the late warm weather will wake them up!

Olearia Macradonta looks like its will never recover - so sad - it has lost all it's leaves and not a sign of a bud anywhere. It was five years old and a good size Sad Lost loads of osteospernum, they have just melted . Also lost some lovely dark leaf hebe's.
