i have it near the pond which it loves, once it starts flowering it flowers for months.

That's doing well !
Is the area near the pond a dry, sunny spot ?

yes, it's on the sun baked side of the pond along with other rockery plants it's very hot and dry there.

oddly enough some of the buds were from last year that never opened but have done now, but it's full of new buds, i have been lucky here the weather has been warm and bright..
