When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

6 May 2018 • ...then I read that ‘Alba’ was more robust than the usual pink and white #lamprocapnos So I succumbed a second time 😉

😁😁 I have this one but no sign of flowers this year. Might need repotting.

That’s a shame. I’m no expert but I hope that does it. The flowers are so wonderful @ublaszko

I'm not really sure but it could also be because of last year's drought. It died back sooner than it was supposed so perhaps it doesn't have enough energy to flower this year. It's a shame but I have other new plants I'm enjoying atm.

I wondered the same as when I saw them recently at Cambridge Botanic Gardens they were growing by the side of a stream, so I presume they like a bit of damp 🤔 @ublaszko

Alba is beautiful, I have two now. Neil accidentally trod on one and I thought it was a gonner so he replaced it, and now it’s flowering really well again 😍😍
