Lovely dainty flowers. My mother used to grow A. vulgaris, the old 'Bishop's Caps'. The colour range now is fantastic.

Sorry for such a late reply Vincent. Thank you. This is one my good lady bought about 6 or 7 years ago, it's been moved around a few times but never fails to put on a good show (with the help of a bit of Fish, blood and bone).

I love the older varieties - I picked up a couple of very dark blue unwanted ones from one of my customer's the other day ... looking forward to popping them out in the Autumn - somewhere :)

I agree about the old forms, the new ones are a bit gaudy and difficult to place with other plants, unless you go for the 'full on' effect.
