Lol...Wildrose and thank you. That is a lovely compliment. :o))
It's very vibrant colour isn't it Sb.
The soil where these are isn't very moist Moti. Do they prefer wet soil?

I like the dark stems and leaves as well as the very red flowers. They are quite showy.

I think this one gets the run-off from the pond so maybe the soil is more moist than in the borders. Perhaps that's why it's doing ok.
