So pretty! Do you find them very invasive, Karen - I am very tempted!

yes, they really are thuggish Melchi. But when something this beautiful appears at this time of year...well, you can forgive it almost anything!

Yes - I'm inclined to agree!

I wish I knew where I was going wrong with these as I love them! They struggle to stay alive for me and are definitely not thuggish. I have tried every aspect in my garden now and am still failing. Last year I bought one with lovely tall, pale pink flowers for the new garage border. It's in a nice sunny spot with very good soil (not my usual concrete clay) and was watered regularly during the hot spell but still no flowers (or lush leaves really). My remaining ones are in pots now so they never reach their full potential :o((

I still have them all but they are in pots until I can find a better spot. It sounds like my dry summer clay is the problem :o)
