Sadly, not very, Denise....about a week, I suppose. I've seen a purple one - it's on my wish list!

Lovely. On my wish list too!

I 'think' it's actually a bulb or a small tuber, I'll have to look it up. Mr and Mrs MB would know, I suspect!

Ha - trust you!!!! You're lucky - I'll just have to get one now!!! ;-)

Do 'you' think they're tuberous/bulbous as well, Grindle?

Yes, for what it's worth, I think it's a tuber. Mine arrived as a tuber and I just stuck it in and it grew immediately!

I'll check my catalogue - they might possibly be in there.

tubers :-) I heard somewhere they split once they've finished flowering, trouble is I can't remember where I heard it (sorry)

Haven't had time to look, yet, but I might be able to get some from the autumn catalogue, which has come. Don't worry yourslf about the 'splitting' bit! LOL.
