@midnightgardener the petals are delicate and are easily damaged by heavy rain, wind or heaven forbid a late frost ( one this Saturday coming!!) I inherited the bush when we moved here and it is always a talking point with passerby’s.
@oldwoodentop Oh no what a shame! I think my neighbours have got one and it's a big one! Such a shame that it's so delicate. My Patty Plum poppies were ruined in all the rain we had last year. I do hope it doesn't happen this time round 😊😊🌼🌼
