@pelly @KOutdoors @juliesgarden @jeatacake thanks all ☺️ flowered earlier than usual this year and is absolutely loaded with these beautiful flowers. Looks far too exotic to be happy in an English greenhouse 🤣

@terrimclaughlin Terri! How are you keeping? It’s been a while since I saw you on here 😜 I’m doing well thanks. Still trying to avoid Covid from what seems like my entire family 🤣 but can’t complain really ☺️ aren’t they just lovely, especially the bright pink stalks they sprout from 😍

@philstalder that’s such a lovely gift! 🥰 I was gifted mine too! Jaqueline @awomanonabike sent me a piece a few years back ☺️ didn’t take long before it was flowering like crazy so I’m hoping the same for yours 💗

@cyndi it does look quite different to yours. The foliage isn’t as thick and there aren’t spikes on this one. Maybe it’s a slightly different type. The flowers do look the same though 😜
