One of my favourites as well, I`ve had the pink for years but the white was new last year, not sure whether it will have survived our winter, fingers xx......

It looks lovely framed well done.

You can also take cuttings from this , I have taken lots when the flower finishes I cut back and at the bottom are little new stems on like a v branching from the main stem, mine is a cutting as I gave my big one to my son its off that.

Great one, Tony! Transplanted mine last year, so I'm hoping it'll be just as happy in it's new home. Those "key" flowers are beautiful aren't they, and such a pretty leaf too.

They also split, when I dug my beautiful mature golden one up, it split itself into 4 pieces. Unfortunately this was during my makeover so had to put it back together into one very big pot as I had run out of pots. I'm taking it out this spring so will be interesting to see if it's still in four pieces:-)
