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??
