I'm checking you photo San .. I bought one of these plants at the weekend , I wasn't sure what it was as the writing on the label wasn't very good , it is the same name , I hope I can keep it alive as it needs to be moist according to the site i've been looking at , my hubby has found a big plastic container He is going to sink it into the ground for me then I can keep watering it .. :o))

sounds a good plan amy, mine in raised border and only gets sun late afternoon and always seems moist compared to rest of garden, i only water when i do the rest and it seems very happy there, i think as long as not in full sun they do ok, good luck
