They're lovely little plants, aren't they - they vanish after they've flowered!

2 May, 2010

 

I really like these - are they fussy?

2 May, 2010

 

No - they come up each year...they're supposed to like shade, but I have them in a sunny area - haha, they can't read!

Really lovely plant....so different.

I ordered two WHITE ones this year, and I'm waiting to see if they flower, Grindle! :-)))

Had to go on favourites for future reference.

I'm pleased you like it, Toto. :-)))

I certainly do. How tall do they get. I think I'll try and order some.

3 May, 2010

 

Theyr'e small - less than a foot.

Sounds just right. Thank you Spritz.

Just catching up on your photos B. Lovely plant this....

6 May, 2010

 

It is indeed - my first one was a pressy from a friend, and I added another. I'm waiting for two white ones to flower, now - but it's more likely to be next year, I think.

Something to look forward to! ;)

Love this Spritz....

9 May, 2010

 

It is a beautiful plant - worth growing if you don't mind it vanishing in the summer!

9 May, 2010

 

when I was at Harlow Carr last week I was going to get it but the rhs man said it need full sun and wasnt suitable for shade. so I didnt buy it I didnt re check either. :o(
wished I had just bought them now.

let me know how it does Spritz. I noticed what looks like seedlings of the pink one in the border :)

10 May, 2010

 

These have been in for at least three years, Grindle, and they do well - better every year! I 'have' planted the white ones in the shade, and i'll keep an eye on them, of course.

10 May, 2010

 

:) thanks

?? will there be any for sale at your open day ;D

12 May, 2010

 

Nope. They'll have finished flowering, and my friends who run the plant stall won't put any plants on that are 'over'.
