Beginning to colour up to provide a real show for the winter months.

I bought 2 small ones of these this year, the birds pulled one up and flew of with it, lol, and the other has grown a bit. I can't wait for it to get as big and beautiful as yours.

It won't take long - I got this one only a year ago pretty cheaply at a diy store as a small plant - I've even had to thin it out a bit. The flower spikes were nice too.

Thanks! I had to stick to just one or two as I have such a small garden. Really pleased with this, its been a lovely coppery colour over the winter.

I'd like one too - I have sort of crammed mine in a small space - this would be a nice finish to the collection
