Haven't seen these before, does it grow very big?

6 Jun, 2010

 

They're about 18" tall and about 10" wide, they've been in the ground about 2 years, they don't seem invasive either.

Not met this one before - any special requirements Louise or is it happy in most places?

This has been on the list for a couple of years now, lovely plant.....

I managed to get this at Malvern last year, can't wait to see flowers on it

Katnip, it likes partial shade and doesn't like to dry out, either. However, mine gets shade from mid afternoon only and, is in quite dry soil !!!
Grindle, i remember us talking about it, glad you found it :-)

I bought two from Morgan and Thompson earlier in the year, both have disappeared((

Hmmm, say no more :-(
I've had the same experience (as have a lot others here) with T&M stuff.

Like this one Louise, don`t know the name of the one I have - its just about to flower. I also avoid T&M after a bad experience.

I ordered Clematis 'fragrant oberion' from T&M and when it arrived it had one little dead stick on it....so i contacted them and they sent me another...the same...I planted them both and neither of them grew....:<((
