I really love this plant, but mine isn't as good this year. :-(

oh really why is that Spritz? - the flowers do get wrecked easy in the rain.... i have quite a few knocked over and browning off now.. but i have had a lovely display.... even if short lived....

Far fewer stems have appeared...last year there were 12, I think - this year, only 5. :-( I didn't think they were short-lived??

I shall have to plant another - it's such a joy when it arrives.
