They almost have a tropical look - like we were in Hawaii.

Thanks Paul I collected the original seed on a holiday in France where it really did look tropical I didn't think it would grow so well here ,The leaves are massive Sandra I have several around the garden they grow much better here than in our previous garden I guess they must like neglected soil and sand .. I'm hoping to save some seed but I'm not sure if the season will be long enough for them to ripen properly ...
