Thanks very much Katy. I am so thrilled with it this year. Last year it barely flowered. Something still likes to chew on its leaves though. It gets a couple of doses of insecticidal soap a week. 🤞🤞 @gjones

These are nice. I’ve had them in the garden for 8? years now. They do kinda disappear, but they reseed. Sometimes the seeded ones revert to all green, so you have to pull those out. 🌞

Today is the first day my garden is dry enough that I can walk around everywhere. I know I lost a few plants but most made it. It’ll be a late garden this year as everything is about 3 weeks behind schedule. I’ll be doing catch-up for the next while😟

You really are behind but so happy everything is ok and things are dried out. Weather can really change things so much. It will all work out in the end and be beautiful 👍😊 @gjones

@hkyfvr was going to ask if it’s because it’s a new plant but looked back and see it flowered last year 🤔 perhaps it’s just another one that’s late because of the insane weather 🤷🏻‍♀️ will be lovely to have it bloom even if it’s late on 😍

When I got it last year it was in bloom. It did get a few buds in early summer but the rains came and they vanished. Maybe the weather did cause this. They do like hot , dry weather I think. Thanks for your help. I would love to see even one or two flowers. 🌼🌼 @kez001uk
