They can go a bit mad Paul, but I'm sure someone on here said to me recently that this one is not so rampant. I had a purple flowered one with silvery leaves and within a couple of years it was all through the blooming border. I spent the last two years getting it out and it's still popping up in there. Anyway, it's lovely....keep an eye on it! lol :)

Ooo forgot about Lamium, I'm looking for plants for a shady spot, doing a extension on the woodland bed, this is a lovely one, adding to favourites.
There was a lovely one a Malvern quite tall with really huge pink flowers, never seen one like it, of course it'd sold out and forgot to make a note of the name :-(

Now that is a lovely one Karen, I've added to favourites so I remember the name, thankyou for that, it'd look lovely with my 2 new hostas and don't mind if it spreads around either, much prefer that to the ivy I spend my life trying to get rid of :-))
