thanks ladies... it is indeed.. the full name is a bit of a mouthful so will say this only once...up the top on title lol... sorry takes so long to load them on with this pc i never get to name them straigh away... this is a lovely plant i have two different varieties and they make quite a statment this is approx 5ft at the moment but they can get bigger, need no staking and are great for autumn/winter interest too.... would recommend :-)

it's my PC San it is just soooo slow, and i usually have lots to load all at once... and the fact that i have soooo many plants in my file... it is easier and far quicker to just load 3 at a time while i am doing something else, eg; house work, cooking dinner etc.... you know multi tasking that us girls are so good at! lol and then go through the whole lot after and link them to the plants in my file... thing is i often get dragged away before i can finish... hense lots of delays before loading info.... sorry bout that people... i do my best.... :D

and San do you have any good plant ID books... i have a shelf full and i find them sooo useful... my RHS guid i bought for £4 in a charrity shop a coupld of years back... it is quite old and a bit out of date... but it does the job.... i am always fogetting names... even after 30 years of gardening and 3 years of hort college ;-S
