Love this plant, I grew it from seed a few years ago and found some of my collected seed in my seed box, so grew it again this year, some are around 7ft tall, doesn't survive the winter here though,
Lovely picture Amy:-)

This was a plant that I bought in a sale Kathy , I bought two for 25p each they have been well worth it , mine are about 7 ft tall , I have been reading about them in the hope of keeping them through the winter , it says if you cut them down to ground level or just above , encase them in a mulch about 4/5 " thick it stands a chance of comming through the winter , I will try it , i've got nothing to lose ... :o)
