They normally produce plenty of seed if you want any, normally two years to flower

I will buy one Brian....do you keep it in a pot? I would rather not wait two years. :0)))

Hi Brian, if you have spare seed that would be good, thanks.

Bought an actea earlier this year - was disappointed it hasn't flowered. Maybe very very late up here!
It's beautiful Brian.

Mine didnt thrive. It was a white one which I set by the pond, probably my clay in that area was too heavy plus the cold winter must have finished it off.

Girls the original is in the ground plenty of clay which dried out bad over the last couple of months that is picking up with the wet weather and starting to flower, the one you see is in a pot.
Dawn providing it has time to set will harvest some for you

An interesting plant.
I like the contrast between the dark foliage/stems and the blooms.

I have kept mine in a large pot and it has thrived this year after being moved to a shadier spot. Thanks Brian :o)
