Very similar, but not that frilly at the ends when the flowers open up @twin-dragons

I must say that having googled it, Boliviana looks nicer. Sorry it died ☹ Maybe more tender than Thalia? @twin-dragons

It was down to those pesky vine weevil grubs I had so many . Had to use nematodes in the end @jeatacake

There are a few tubular ones like this. This is the only one I have, but you don't see many of them around @midnightgardener
