I think you might be right @kathy - if it is major, then wondering how big it might get. Have you seen it flower yet @Garyg ?

There is a Melianthus minor as well. I presume that is a 'mini' version?

Think this one is a major, only got it this year but it's growing really fast now.

@jeatacake hi, it got quite big last year but unfortunately didn't survive the winter so might get another one and look after it a bit better.
