Little Ronnie

'Little Ronnie' is going to be a beautiful bush! I can't wait to see this one burst out next spring. It has been very cold here and a couple of specimens in my collection sustained some damage. It wasn't possible to cover every one of them and to be honest, part of the process is to see which ones can make it through the winters without assistance. But I ought to have covered the F. boliviana's. They look like they were put too close to a roaring fire :-(

But they are not dead and knowing how the weather can suddenly get warm here even in December and January, I expect them to make a full recovery and they will be covered the next time there is any danger of a freeze.
