This is a very recent acquisition. A clump dug up from a friend's mother in law's garden 👍 @valjones-hughes

I've always wanted one too Della. Bought one many years ago which died in less than a year & no success from seed @harebell

Thanks Shelley. You do see odd ones of this here in the UK, but they're certainly not common. This one's flowers seem more colourful than others I've seen before though 🤩👍 @ShelleySnyder

@jeatacake This is a beauty, I find the plants that do best for me are ones I get from other peoples gardens, perhaps its to do with similar conditions.
