Hi,

I bought a beautiful plant a couple of years ago that had no label, and unfortunately didn't last the winter. I've been trying to find it again but with no luck. Unfortunately I was stupid and never took any photos Sad So any suggestions of what it could be are gratefully received.

It was a smallish plant, which fitted a normal tub, and had plain green leaves. The flowers were very small, almost rounded, with pink and white petals. It flowered all over and constantly throughout the summer - when the old flowers were finished they simply died off and were replaced by new ones. The flowers weren't on long stems or anything, just mixed up with the leaves on the bush.

No thorns or anything.

I know it's not much to go on, but thought I'd ask just in case! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer.

As I said, any suggestions welcome!

Thanks very much Smile

Maria

I've found this link with lots of images of plants that may be yours Maria. If you could take a look and let us know which one looks most like the one you had then we'll try to ID it for you.

Well Maria, without a photo it is very hard. But you made me think about my pink Potentilla. It has bloomed, and bloomed since mid June. As I look out my window, it is late October and it is still blooming!
Potentilla fruticosa
Just a thought...
