Howdy All, Weldenia candida is one of those things on my wish list if I can ever obtain it. The pictures that Lesley Cox has posted on the SRGC site in the past have been to die for, so it is one I covet now. Not sure how well it would grow in my conditions but worth a try. I had never done any study into it so it was interesting to see that it was in commelinaceae (I think that may be spelled incorrectly?) as I had wondered if that was the case judging by its flowers. So nice to see it being discussed here as it is a rather striking plant, although definitely not something easily available in my country (please someone tell me I'm wrong there.... because I want it!! <grin>). Hopefully more people will try growing it because of this discussion as it would be a wonderful addition to any collection I think. Keep all the interesting discussions happening everyone.... I might not respond to them often but I read them all!! LOL Can't help my gardening addiction now can I?? Cheers.
