Aaha - I was recently given two clumps of these from an elderly neighbour (apparently I admired them in her garden) but she didn't know what they were - now I know. Can you tell me anything about them please?

Sorry for the late reply, they are one of my favourites. They like cool soil with a bit of shade, they come in dirrent colours ranging from white through pink, purple and blue and they have different sorts of white marking on the leaves,

The one I've got has got white spots and I think it gets purple flowers. They've picked up very well, lost a few leaves but apart from that they're OK. I've put one in shade and one in sun (with a bit of shade) so I'll see which one does the best!
