Should mirabilis go under cover in Summer?
« on: November 02, 2012, 18:30:08 »
Our summer's pretty rainy sometimes, and I would like to know if it's ok for mirabilis to get water in the summer? Sometimes I'm scared to even look at this plant too long LOL Note that lily borers found it palatable last year, not good news for me.

 Michael,
Is this topic prompted by the latest Bond 'Skyfall' movie?
And if so, if we know the answer, is it safe to tell?
 :mmm:
Glad to see you're being a bit more communicative the past while.
Regards
Roger

Michael,

I think we usually have more summer rain than you do. The past few years have been an exception.

My two mirabilis are out in the open, get the full amount of rain we get and look exceptionally healthy. I suppose looks can be deceiving! Their condition has prompted someone else from EL to ask me to look after his plant, but it "must' be next to mine so as to get the same conditions!

Suffice to say, while they look healthy, they have both refused to flower! One, which I purchased as an adult plant, I have had for 5 years.

Please don't blame me for this advice if you follow my conditions and something happens to your plant!
