I love this with the sun through it, waving about in the breeze!

I fell in love with this plant when visiting Garden Organic Yalding,they had it at the side of a walkway, it's tall beautiful, and you can still see through it, very sensual plant..

Thank you Hoya - there are matching steps the other end of the border! I'll take a photo when (if) it stops raining! I am ashamed to say that we haven't yet done the rounds of the gardens in our area yet - went to the Kent/Sussex ones frequently before the BIG move to Somerset! Must make the effort and see the steps at Hestercombe...if we get a sunny day????

Yes, Cristina. No problem at all, and it stays green in the winter, apart from the flowering stems, which go gold, then I cut them off in the spring. It does take up a lot of space, though!
