They're lovely in white.
I have one for the first time this year & note that you have what looks like a good sized clump there. Any secrets??

Grows pretty fast Meanie, no secret just a sunny spot, must admit haven't even put fertilzer down this year, does usually get a bit of chicken poo,lol, have had it several years though and think there are 3 clumps here, won't be long before yours gets this big :-)

That's the kind of answer I like! Thanks.

Very nice. I got one last week (purple) for £1 from the car boot :-)

Bargain Dawn, think I need to go to a car boot to sell a few of my plants,lol, you're probably the same with all these seed grown plants,lol.

Good idea Kathy. I think I'd be upset selling them after all the nurturing though.
Did your purple loosestrife seeds grow?
