Thanks Pixi

I agree with Pixi, Very pretty!

Thanks Violeteyes, they can reach 4ft if kept moist and apparently they are rabbit resistant. I think they might well be related to the foxglove Pixi but have not found any proof they are.

Not seen this one in years, we used to grow them in the Midlands the white and the pink, the children were fascinated by them..... personally I love them.

I wish I had discovered them earlier DD

You hardly see them any more, usually have to go to nurseries rather than GCs....

I agree, its why it to me so long to discover them.
