Lol, Pixi!
...I've had this before but not in this colour...it's like blue swansdown in the middle :))
...they bloom for ages, don't they Sue!

They do, and if you cut them back, they'll come again..
When we did the other side of the Fence on the new front garden...I split one into two, and planted them there, and they are doing well....They're very accomodating......

Yes, a very easy plant! Hopefully, in a year or two I'll be able to do the same! :))

Thank you, P :)
Alex, this might be quite a good one for you...can grow up to more than 30cms...needs watered very well and then left to become dry...and only the albaflore is toxic (from what I can make out)! :)

Thanks Karen,
I'm going to buy this plant when I see it. I've been on the look-out for it.
Does it like sun or shade???

It likes sun Alex, but it can cope with some shade...my last one at my old house had half a day of each :)
