That's never chalcedonica is it? I've never seen it so tall, whatever did you feed it? This is a beautiful photo:-)

Yes Bornagain it is. The soil was so good, having been a Market Garden previously, and I didn't feed it, except the usual Autumn and Spring blood, fish and bone meal. My favourite Lychnis is Atrosanguinea, the silver foliage one with cerise flowers. Especially in this sandy soil I now have.

No Homebird I didn't I'm afraid. Circumstances were against it at the time.
I know the next owner really loved it though, which was important. So glad you liked it. Love your Arums.
