  1. one flower from 100 seed packet

    By Julie Berk 31-07-2016

    I only had 1 flower from an entire packet of seeds and then it didn't even look like the one on the web site. Very disappointing.

  2. Bees a plenty on wonderful blooms

    By Peter Humphrey 15-07-2013

    I grew these last year and a rather wet year . This year with all the sun these have really excelled and the bees just love wallowing in the large flowers trying to feed and gather pollen. These will be on the list for next year
