Delivered in good condition, C.Armani AppleBlossom has already thrown out two new healthy shoots which have shiny bronze leaves. As it is evergreen and blooms in early spring I look forward to the first of next year's pinky-white
blossoms.

Not sure this one has found its feet, which is a pity because I was anticipating it going like the clappers. Nice plant when it arrived, so this very likely to a site issue, not a Sarah Raven one. Really hope it picks up as I do love an Armandii and this one sounds like it will smell wonderful when it flowers.

Not looking very good but might be due to hard winds this year. Leaves shrivelled up, some have gone yello in spite of watering and feeding.
