I'm beginning to grow a real appreciation for these plants.

They're lovely. So easy to grow as well. I once picked some and put them in a little vase. That was a mistake!! They smell vile!

Me too! I didn't give them any attention and then I saw one close up at a show and now live them. I bought one but it's not started flowering yet.

@richard.spicer.7906 as you can imagine I came back with more than one plant 😄😂 (I've definitely got an addiction issue)

We must have the same condition! I call it the GT effect 😂 - I'm trying to be good at the moment as I've got a bit of a backlog in the planting front, and the Wisley show is coming soon in September and I tend to bring a car load back with me from that one 😳🚗
