I grew this from seed many years ago, but lost it after about 5 years. I like the reddish flowers against the greyish leaves.

Yes I lost all mine from seed at the same time , those two awful winters, luckily I collected seed so I have them all over again and this year back to the size of the originals :-)

I really like them, I have a few flowers remaining I must remember to collect the seed, just in case.

Me too Dawn !, I haven't collected seed from anything yet well except digitalis Lutea as I promised my neighbour some :-)
