Thanks folks :-)))
Moti, isn't it queer ?
I'm not convinced that my other one will flower now, it seems quite late to start doesn't it ?
I don't even have flower buds on it ..... other than that the plant looks really healthy though :-/

Hi im new here and this is my first posting (: i came across this plant in my local nursery today and decided to buy one, by the sounds of it it has made a lot of people pleased here, it says its hardy but will it tolerate harsh frosts?
great photo by the way!

Hi Bevb, these are gorgeous plants and yes, hardy !
I have a few and they died back (as they should do) in winter and bounced right back with new growth in the spring, they dealt with an abnormally cold winter, for here, with no trouble at all.
Plant it now - don't wait, let it start to get its roots down and established asap.
