Thats kind SBG, and most welcome if you dont want it. I love the tall slim plants, you can squeeze them into a fairly small spot! I have crocosmias dotted around and have just bought Salvia Blue Queen and some Lobelia Fans..my Hadspen Purple survived both last bad winters very well, so Im hoping I can keep these others for a while. Ive also gone a bit silly and bought a white Hesperis..altho it seeds, my OH a beggar for going around pulling up tiny weeds (or so he thinks lol) so I dont think I will be getting taken over!
I also bought some Lunaria Canon Went..not sure where its going to "went", but always handy for front of the border.
