  1. What a difficult choice… so many beauties… I only voted for one but my top 3 would be: wisteria, calycanthus, edgeworthia… or roses too… sigh…

    1. I can add them all for you Fred 😀

  2. Why is it that in my head I have a recollection of avoiding far more plants of the week than I can now find, either in your list of twelve or by ploughing back through your blog? The plant I would have voted for didn’t make a plant of the month cut but I have to choose one of your twelve so it’s Jeanne de Montfort. But I will view her from afar as whilst I may have space for her here, I do not have THE space. That three-letter word can often be very significant.

    1. Very sorry John just when you felt you had a couple of weeks off, I hit you with 12! I was quite surprised by the higher view ones, some I think will have a lot of views didn’t have too many, will add your choice to the list lol it can….. maybe…..,

  3. So difficult to choose, but I love Wisteria!

    1. Great choice 😀

  4. Wow, I do not think that I am qualified for this. All my plants are the common sorts of plants that can be found in common nurseries. Many of your choices are less common. I happen to like calycanthus, so would be inclined to vote for Calycanthus X raulstonii ‘Hartlage Wine’. However, I also like the Callicarpa bodinieri ‘Giraldii Profusion’. I think I should vote for the Callicarpa bodinieri ‘Giraldii Profusion’.

    1. Lol I think you are 😀 thank you will add your votes to the list 👍😀

  5. I am struggling to choose between Edgworthia – I photographed the Wisley glade in the evening Glow with drops of water sparkling over each inflorescence, Rosa ‘Jeanne de Montfort’ – I like the Brittany connection, and the Fascicularia with interesting possibilities and which I know I can get a cutting of. I’d like to grow all three. I have always liked Calycanthus and that variety has more showy flowers so it is a runner up, oh and the Pussy willow is unusual so it could feature too. Oh dear, my winner (ip dip) is the more common rose. Only just found your blog so will have to backtrack for the rest.

    1. Haha it’s so hard isn’t, I am so pleased I didn’t vote, I would of found it impossible to choose but great choices though. Yes that edgeworthii grove at Wisley is Just so beautiful isn’t, every time I see it, I just stand back and admire it, just so lovely
