Mine is in partial shade till mid/late afternoon,Sue,as it's sheltered from the shed tii then..it doesn't get watered as often as it should,but still performs well...got mine from Morries at a great price.:o)

It gave it to be horrible here today,Sue,and it's been nice and warm so far,but cloudier.We might get it later on..Isn't it frustrating when you could be doing something outside? I've still managed to plant bedding out despite my pot bound left arm..very slowly though,but at least it got me outside :o)

Our weather broke up last Thurs Sandra with a mega storm, flash flooding in some places, its rained every day since, hence the trip out to Belton, we needed somewhere indoors to while away a few hours, wellies were needed around the park..
I always say you can't keep a good woman down and we all know that where there's a will there's a way, lol....

Hi Pansy, it was a choice between the mauve or pink, grandson said definitely this one as he thinks it will go better with everything else, I might have a budding gardener on my hands, lol.....

I love this plant too. Mine was just maturing at the old garden, but I've planted two baby ones here. It's cracking. The colour is gorgeous and the flowers last a long time.

I've taken mine out the garden. it was looking very unhappy, popped it back into a pot to keep an eye on it, obviously did not like the position it was in and I don't want to lose it, seems to have perked up now...
