Love these, going to get some next year. There's an article on them in this month's Gardens Illustrated by Carol Klein. There's one called 'Garnet' which isn't for sale yet as it's so new, but Its definitely going in my garden when it becomes available..it's a stunning purple shade. The blue ones are also lovely. Can you tell me Janette, when the flowers fade, do the leaves get ever so big?

These are lovely Janette would they suit a pond edge think they would look lovely next to water.

The new one sound great Karen ,must keep a look out when they go on sale.......the leaves just stay the same all year although the bulbs seem to have multiplied when I planted them there were five now seven ....not that i am complaining .... :}
