The cassia is still in flower!
There have been several bad storms with lots of wind & only yesterday I began to notice old flowers on the lawn after the storm.
I think that would make it 3mths since I first noticed flower buds opening.
Since I took those photos in my earlier post, the tree became laden with flowers.
I wish my orchard bore as well!! :D

Where I used to live near Maleny, I planted a grafted red flowering gum in the horse yards. It had huge flowers & gumnuts & great long leaves.
Recently I saw some photos of a property for sale near my old place & low & behold the tree could be seen in the background, a distance away & is well grown & was in riotous colour! I'm so glad it did well. It cost me a lot of money to buy the advanced tree but I felt it was worth the investment for that location.
I wish the same variety would do well here but I doubt it.

We went to the Burra Open Gardens today. I came across this at the Biodynamic garden. Can any one identify it?

This is called neomarica gracilis, or the walking iris.

Somewhere later in this same thread, I posted pictures of neomarica caerulea, the blue (purple) version.

Neomaricas really are gorgeous, even if shortlived. Your picture is really nice!

Not an iris but Trillium chloropetalum or giant Trillium, a Californian native. Do an image search for the botanical name to see many examples.

Thanks Rossi.
Interesting - it takes 5-7 years to reach flowering size from seed

I like the last lot of roses, do you know what they are?

Everything looks nice and healthy, have you had a wet spring or just been doing a lot of hand watering?
