Hi @dandelion1 😆👍 I have a deep pink one too but that has not really started to flower yet. Maybe a week (& a few feet) behind this paler one.

Does it completely die back in the winter?

Yes, to a really thick tap root, which I only found out a few years ago when I dug it up when moving house!

@angipangi Is there as hashtag for everything? 😀 As you can tell, I've not really grasped it yet, lol! Is there a list of the # categories anywhere?

You can add a hashtag to anything you like and feel is appropriate. Go into your profile page and click on Discover at the bottom left on page and at the top right of next page click Tags and browse. It will probably take you hours to get through them all but it will give you an idea of the range. Hope this helps.
