Notes: Purchased 2020: two small plants but neither thrived well perhaps because the potting compost soil is too rich. March 2021 – both plants looking healthy and full of bud. Flowered profusely until June – died from neglect in the heat when transferred to new home before the actual move.
March 2022 Purchased 1 plant from Matlock garden centre as ideal for the Cottage Garden
