Very welcome! I think these are pretty tough so it should be fine for you! 💘😍

Thanks Shelley. Glad you said this as I was unsure. Funny how this photo gives the illusion that the plant is lying on the ground. Maybe it is the black mulch. 🤔🤣 @ShelleySnyder

Thanks so much Katy. Really enjoying it. Just an update; saw the plastic surgeon today and she did not remove any stitches as yet. She said the top part is healing but the lower larger part of my injury is a wait and see thing. It may need surgery to do a skin graft. For the time being I need homecare to help with bandage changes. Still have to keep it up as much as possible. 🙁 @gjones

Diane it sounds like its starting to heal but needs more time. You really must have gashed your leg! Keep your feet up and try to relax - hopefully a skin graft won’t be needed. I think you should share a photo with all your GT friends as we’re concerned for you and trying to picture what it looks like.

I was going to but was not sure anyone wanted to see it. I think I will though. Trying to relax as much as possible so it will heal and I will not need surgery. 🤞🤞 @gjones.

Hi Diane it’s looking great, I think I would need to grow this in a pot if I had another go. It doesn’t like my soil unfortunately 🤔 @hkyfvr

Thanks Karen. I read it likes acidic soil so I am going to try peat. 🤞🤞 @KOutdoors

It really is. I hope I can do well with it. I know it likes acidic soil. It is good in zone 5 so I hope it overwinters ok. This is a new one for me. 🤞🤞 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I’ve no doubt you’ll make it a happy home 😛 sounds like it’s perfect for your climate. Great to have something that’ll give all-year colour too 💚❣️💚

Thanks so much Kerry. I will try my best and maybe shelter it from the winter winds and hopefully it will thrive. 🤞🤞 @kez001uk

Thanks very much Katy. The new growth does look like foliage. I love how it changes colours a few times during the season and even has some blooms. The foliage is the best part though. 👍😍 @gjones
