Don't worry about getting more, SBG. They multiply like rabbits, though it may take a couple years for the offsets to bloom. I'm still experimenting and learning about mine, and I just had one of the scrawniest of my potted ones surprise me with a late flower spike, while all th others are busy going to sleep for the summer. Every time I think I'm getting a handle on things... : D

Is this still growing in your garden please?

hi yes I can see the foliage coming up but it hasn't flowered for a few years now. it gets crowded out by the Hesperis that I keep forgetting to weed out. so it never gets enough sun to set a flower. I will try to remember to do this this season.
