This is a lovely white one Kathy , mine have started to bloom again since we have been having some warm weather ...

Mine was not that great for flowers this year. I put it down to the weather, or perhaps because I moved it last autumn?

Could be because they've been moved Drc, I moved a couple of these last autumn and they haven't flowered either even though there's lots of leaf growth.
Thanks Amy, I remember seeing your picture, lovely colour :-)

I think moving it did it Simbad, as it said on the label "once established it is very easy to grow" and I seem to remember it took 18 months to flower after a spring planting, then I moved it as it was too big for the space. Also they like it well drained, and I find on my clay it takes longer to get some plants established.

Thats probably it then Drc I'm on heavy clay too.
