Wow..brilliant this..did you manage to get seeds? What works alongside this, it would seem pretty versatile in a border..I'd love something this dramatic

they come back each year guy, but can be prone to rust , i had 4 and taken two out as were covered in it, hollyhocks are lovely and tall, so need space, one of mine was over 7ft last year, look great in cottage garden borders, somewhere with lots of colour i think anyway, i didnt get seeds with having two left but you can get them easierly at Gc,
