Dodonaea viscosa v. purpurea – Purple Hop Bush

9July14 034 (1024x683)Dodonaea viscosa v. purpurea or the Purple Hop Bush has flowered (and subsequently fruited) for the first time this year.  A few of our Softy Walters have performed exceptionally well this year, this one included.  The reasons are undoubtedly complex but I would guess it is a combination of the extremely mild winter and the fact they are becoming established and have acclimatised to our unique environment.  And my singing, that would definitely have helped.

    You sing to your plants???

    I must admit to talking to them sometimes, but not singing.

    Maybe I should give it a go!
