  1. Wonderful flowers

    By Linda Morgan 17-08-2016

    I've loved the range of colours (pinks, reds and mauves) that I've had from these plants. The peony-like blooms are fantastic and I've also had some single blooms which are equally beautiful. Only down side is that the flowers only last a day.
