David is that a phormium at the front of the pic? I have a phormium "Bronze Baby" but I love the red of your one

Hi Maple, yes it is. I have had it for 4 years and, initl a few months ago, it was in a mid-green galzed pot, and I lifted it into the cold greenhouse to overwinter. Last year i forgot to do so, but it was ok, so it has been planted out to fend for itself. I forget its name for the mo, but it is "Sometging Sunset". I must find out exactly what, for my records. Best wishes.

Thanks for the answer David :) Could it be 'Sunset Dreams'?

Hi maple, none of these I'm afraid. Was back where I got it from but they had none. I am determined to find out! It is definitely "something Sunset", not "Sunset something", LOL
