Honey Bush Leaves

Some newly emerged leaves from the Honey Bush – otherwise known as Melianthus Major – which I photographed whilst at Heale Gardens a couple of weeks ago. I always love seeing these architectural-type plants – the leaves have always fascinated me. The plant first came to my attention when I saw a gardening programme years ago – I would have had one for the garden but discovered that they aren’t fully hardy, tolerating temperatures no lower than 4 degrees centigrade in the Winter.

    • Thank you Steve! The new leaves on this rather majestic plant really do make for a wonderful photographic subject. That’s one of the things that’s so exciting about Spring – all those fresh, bright leaves.
