That is such a healthy and happy looking plant. It is doing so well, it must like its position.

Thanks Chris..it must do,but it isn't the best of places,as its next to steps where there is lots of concrete underneath...but I managed to get a decent amount of good stuff dug in ..the roots must have found a way round it..under the lawn,probably :o)

I have one of these beauties too, it’s a fabulous plant and keeps itself in a nice shape, very well behaved ! I love the colour and living in Scotland it tolerates the hard frost well, so pleased with it. I’m positive it would provide excellent shelter underneath it’s foliage for garden visitors 😀

Thank you April violets,my goodness,you have gone back a long way,to 2012,and I didn't realise I'd had it so long ! It is still as lovely as ever,but double the width..I keep the top trimmed to a reasonable height,and just tidy the rest of it.I also have a cutting ,which is now getting to a decent size too,but it took a long time to get going. Never give up hope :o) I agree ,a great asset to any garden,and so hardy.:o) .
