Hi. Just seen these sturdy plants starting to come out on the market stalls and shops for sale. They are called Japans flowering winter plant…seemingly flowering for up to 4 - 5 months - can this be true?
My question also is - what conditions do they require? There’s no point me buying one, if it’s delicate. The area of garden I need filling is virtually always sheltered 6 months of the year. Even though there are no other flowers around the area that needs filling - the neighbours fence and the great big conker tree above it, shelters it from both rain and sun. Is this plant hardy enough to survive during the summer months when there is little rain and the leaves are out on that big park tree above it?
