Ooh lots of white ones Sharon! I did have a lovely one with pink edging but it hasn’t appeared, although I’m still waiting for two to flower! Yep! This one has always been left in the ground, I have another that I leave in too and they always seem to do better than the ones I have in pots and lift 😊 @sharonhayden
