Oh these are brilliant. I had one once but forgot to dig it up, so it got buried under 4 feet of topsoil, and never grew through lol

They do very well in shade, in this part of the world anyway, Paul. I saw one this morning, but baulked at the €15 price tag. I'll get somebody to give me a bit of theirs, I think!

I like these too. I read some where or other that they can be invasive, but I've never had any problems. The flowers although tall never need staking which is a bonus!
