Violet Velvet was a winner :-) Arbores has been flowering for me also, during winter. Amazing how they keep it going with practical no water and almost no light.
We need spring and summer now.

Hi Rox
Arborea 'T' is a wild form variety of Arborea. I believe the 'T' comes from the fact that the guy who introduced it is called Tom!
Hi Trine
Great to hear from you :-) A person from Norway has just purchased Violet Velvet from me off Ebay. I told them I had a Brug friend who lives in Norway, I gave them your Blog site address so they could contact you.
Arborea's sure try their hardest to keep blooming :-)

Hi Alan
Just had to tell you. The person that puechased V.V from you, contacted me by e-mail yesterday. He lives just a few kilometres from where I live :-) Guess we will meet for garden chat during spring and summer.
