I seem to remember this last year, Amy. I think I might have to find a spot. Is it hardy?

Do you have more than one Amy? That is lots of berries. I have few of these red balls on mine too but look at yours. Spectacular.

Thats a good idea Kathy ,look at the pink bract one A friend has it, its very pretty but I'm not sure if its as hardy as the white they will be able to tell you :o)

Wow! That's amazing...it's as good as the flowers. They are incredible performers aren't they...foliage colour both in spring and autumn, flowers that stay for weeks on end and then the fruit as well. Oh, how I wish I could grow one or two here!

It is odd as it should have berries...

Amy I found one !!, not at Harrogate not one to be found at the whole of the show but a local nursery yesterday, they had loads of them all covered in the strawberry fruit or I'd probably have missed them, mind you I went for one that only had a couple of fruit as it was a nice shape, excited now off out to plant it in the rain later lol.
'China Girl' it's called.

Hemswell Antiques nursery Karen of all places! I've had a few lovely unusual plants from there this year and its just been extended, you'll have to get your Mum to get you one, £24.99 which I didn't think was bad for a 5ft plant, its starting to change colour and yes it is lovely :-)

Yipeee well done Kathy ,I picked my fallen 'fruits' up and am trying a system I picked up off Google to grow the seeds ,you have to wash them well to remove the soft pulp ,dry them and then put them in a plastic bag of damp sand in the bottom of the fridge for 12 weeks opening the bag once a week to let fresh air into it . I forgot they were in there last week I dragged the bag out with some salad thinking what the He** is this !! I love looking round Helmswell Antiques when we are in the area and have bought several bits from there .. that was a good size for the price in fact it was a good price full stop well done :o)

Lol Amy :-), I planted it out this afternoon:-)
Yes we often go round the Antiques, its only 10-15 mins from us, so many different buildings some are junk but we've had a few nice things from there, Rob likes all the old tools,in fact we didn't go to look round the nursery, we'd seen a nice statue for the garden the week before and decided it was such a good price we'd buy it but obviously someone else thought the same because it had gone!
The nursery is very cheap and they always have some plants that are a bit different, I bought two grasses too hakonechloa only 5.99 each a gold and a variegated leaved one they're huge plants, another thing that I've wanted for a while :-)
