Oh my Annella...I was there last week, thank you so much, will go next week, hopefully they may have some left or else I can always look on line.

Thanks Annella I hadn't got round to putting it's 'proper' name on...lol. I will send you some Michaella. It does sread but very slowly.

Sorry to have jumped in Hb! It spreads slowly here too on my clay but others say they have a problem with it invading :o))

No, Annella, thankyou for jumping in...lol I wouldn't have realised I hadn't put it's name on til much later. Mine is on a very dry bit of the front steps garden. Most of it hanging over the dry stone wall.

Looks lovely but if not restricted can be very invasive. It took me years to eradicate it from my garden completely.

Good job I put it where it is then Costas.

Have seen this plant growing happily on a roadside bank, a garden escape. It was quite damp & shady there too. I guess it isn't too fussy as long as it's not sticky clay that it can't get it's roots into easily.

Very pretty in the right place...

Mine is in a dry position in front of a tree...rubbish soil,but it flourishes..I find it easy to pull out what I don't want too..last pic posted, on 'front border' not long ago..great gap filler :o) It's just going over now,but nice foliage colour anyway..
