Beautiful ,Cinders..I don't know this one either...where did you get it from please? .The size of it would be just right for me,as the 'Bleeding Heart' is too big .Will you keep it in a pot,or plant it out later ?.It really is lovely,and love the foliage too.:o)

Beautiful what is the scent like? Love the flowers too.

Thanks Mot, Sixpence, Bloomer and Lulu. I got it at a nursery about twenty mile away, don't think they have a chain of outlets, but it is a largish clump that I think I may be able to divide up. Going to try it anyway. The scent is very delicate, not strong, only trouble you will have to bend down to it I think to get a whiff !!

Im not too far from Wiltshire!! Which GC?

13 Jul, 2011

 

Lulu, its at Woodborough near Pewsey, right out in the country, narrow lanes, and they have pick your own soft fruit as well. I've been twice now, and each time have had a job to find it !!! www.woodboroughgardencentre.co.uk

Thanks Cinders, Pewsey about an hour away!

13 Jul, 2011

 

Would you go that far then ? You could go on the website and see if they would send anything.

13 Jul, 2011

 

I could go on the way to see my auntie near salisbury?!!

13 Jul, 2011

 

Oh where does she live, I am near Salisbury.

13 Jul, 2011

13 Jul, 2011

 

Great isnt it. I am supposed to be dividing it so Alan can have a piece. But I think i could probably make more than that of it.

13 Jul, 2011

 

don't spoil it though will you,

13 Jul, 2011

 

No, I wont do that. Might wait a year then divide.

13 Jul, 2011

14 Jul, 2011

 

Never mind, we can enjoy yours...I have a feeling my slugs would love it!

14 Jul, 2011

14 Jul, 2011

I am sorry Mahdi I cannot do that as I have never seen any seeds for this.

20 Jul, 2011

 

I have just received a brochure from the Daily Express, with flowers & bulbs etc. and they are advertising this plant in there for 5.99.

22 Jul, 2011

 

Hi Cinders, I was so impressed with the foliage on the one you showed...On my GC visit today I bought 'King of Heart'...the label shows a red Flower, but I spotted a little Pink bud lower down, so I'll have to wait and see...thanks for sharing yours x

22 Jul, 2011

 

Hi Sue, oh that sounds good. Look forward to seeing it.

22 Jul, 2011

 

This is the pic I've been looking for ... it's very unusual and also very pretty! ... Added to my ever lengthening wish-list ... :o)))

27 Aug, 2011

 

I meant to tell you Cinders that 'King of Heart' that I bought, it literally fell apart, I noticed that bits were shrivelling...and took them off, then more...so I dug it up and it had all just disintegrated...I searched the root for nasties, but nothing...so that was the end of that...Not planning on replacing it...

27 Aug, 2011

 

Great Shirley, glad you found it.

27 Aug, 2011

 

Oh thats a shame Sue, sorry to hear that.

27 Aug, 2011

 

no worries Cinders...it was a few weeks ago now...I've only just remembered it....you win some, lose some...:))

27 Aug, 2011

 

Thats true.
