These are lovely, I didn't get any this year as the summer was rubbish last year and mine only grew a couple of inches above the soil and were very poor.

Over here they can get quite tall in the right conditions. This particular one is in a pot and it stands at around 30 cms now.

Mine are looking great this year. Nice to see them on the other side of the world - and in the cool season :)

Hi Weatherwise. I think they're often under-rated and looked upon as being rather a common thing. I'm a big fan because over here they're all-year round bloomers. I just give them a trim back when they get leggy and they spring back very quickly.
