Thank you Jane, Pauline and Jason. I think you and Dan have all wishlisted this. It is lovely but you might want to take a look at E. griffithii Great Dixter which is very similar but is clump-forming, whereas this is suckering. It is easy to control but gives the mint a run for its money... 😉😂 @pelly @flof1952 @Jasonsparkes1 @dan5584
It was in full sun in the front garden. The problem is, although they're a complete pain, I'm not very good at killing the destructive bugs. I even lifted a ladybird from another plant in the hope it might help. It did try but there was no way I could save the plant. I still have another two on the back patio in pots. It was the Ascot Rainbow one and it was such a vibrant colour.
@suzyw What a shame. I've just looked that one up & it looks fab. I love the idea of you doing the house moving for a ladybird 🐞 I have to be honest, there isn't a squeamish bone in my body - I just squish the little *insert expletive here* 😂😂
