Flowers on the Sundaville

Beautiful pink flowers are now finally erupting on the Sundaville. Was it worth the wait? Definitely!

Despite all my moaning about this plant doing nothing since I planted it, I am pleased to say that it is finally producing some beautiful flowers and should continue the show until October. I am hoping that it will also start to grow a bit taller as the flowers are looking slightly unbalanced compared to the size of the plant.

I think what has thrown me with this plug plant is that it has done very little since I received it whereas all my other garden plants have completely exceeded my expectations with the amount of growth and flowers produced they have all. I have had to cut back the Surfinia Petunia’s a couple of times and the smell in the house after I put them into vases is amazing. These are definitely on my must have list for next years plug plants.

Having done some research on the internet about the Sundaville it would appear that I will need to bring it in over the winter months to keep it alive for next year. Not sure how we are going to do this with no conservatory to lock it away from the kids in. My daughter has watched me dead head many of the plants and unfortunately copies me but is pulling off the new flowers instead of the old.

    I have just come across this page as I have been wondering what to do, should I keep them out or should I take them in. I have decided they will stay in the unheated greenhouse over winter and, fingers crossed, the two containers will survive.

    Incidentally, I should have added that my plants have been showing some wonderful flowers. I am more than pleased with them, that`s why I am hoping to keep them over winter and put them out again next year. I don`t know anything about these plants, but I am hoping that if they survive the winter, they will gtow bigger and bigger and flower as well as they have over the last 3 months.

    I have bought my Sundaville indoors for the winter, but have noticed they are dropping all their leaves. Not sure what I should do.

    I bought five in early 2009. They did not budge an inch all through the summer but remained healthily green. With winter approaching I dug them up and repotted in order to bring them indoors. Two dropped all their leaves (are they dead or dormant?) one remains moribund and two started growing rather rapidly. The growth is surprising bearing in mind they are in an unheated conservatory with the temperature today at 0 centigrade. I am not sure how to proceed but will show consideration to the two active ones by bringing them in to a warmer environment.

    I have just been given one of these plants, and plan to bring indoors over winter. It will be in an ingested conservatory, so fingers crossed
