  1. Flowered for months!

    By Tim Lucas 04-12-2014

    Amazing flowers for months on end over the summer. Quite bushy plants that quickly increase their size when planted-out. Suggest you plant to the spacing recommended on the seed packet as they will be touching by the time they flower. Well worth growing two or three together in a border. Hoping they are hardy enough to survive a Highland winter....

  2. Impressive

    By Lois Jay 25-05-2014

    These grew strongly and flowered in the first year. Only two have come through the winter and are just forming buds. However, several of the others self-seeded so provided new plants where the others grew last year.
