Notes: Have grown & loved this plant in past London garden. April 2020 purchased 6 plug plants for several locations – one or two in individual pots to bring in to sunnier locales for comparison with the shadier sited plants.
One still flowering in January 2021 – brought pot nearer the house in sheltered spot to enjoy the blooms – then the snows came in February & almost finished it! Cut dead stems half way back & put in poly greenhouse – signs of regrowth in March
