About 2ft maximum I grow them in containers keeps the slugs away. Plenty of seed if you want to try it. The one in the picture is in its second year, they flower the first year though.

Nice height then, not too tall, think they would be swamped in my borders but thank you for offering. I have the very tall ones in one of the borders (white ones) but the weather did for the ones in the big border. I am having to re-vamp my borders this back end as things have gotten out of hand somewhat with all the rain and sunshine this year. Stuff has gone crazy, it is going to take a good long while to sort stuff out, cannot see some of the shrubs that I planted last spring. ah well it will keep me out of mischief this autumn. lol :O) thanks again for your kind offer. Maybe when I have sorted things and made some room if I ever get done. :O)

Bloomer
I remove all but one or two pods while still green that seems to work for me of course it depends a bit on the weather staying warm, the remaining pods give me plenty of seed. Best of luck
