Thankyou everyone :-)
Think this ones around 5 years old Amy over 6ft tall now, the greenhouse is behind it, you can just see the top of the roof on the left, have 3 others in the garden grown from cuttings taken from this one, love it :-)
Ooo yes the pinks lovely too Beverley,I have a couple of pink too, must take a picture, shame about the scent they pong a bit :-)

Thats the best one I have seen , I was tempted but I need quick grower so went for the deep pink red one
King Eddy to hide next door I should take a photo now I have seen yours

Do you think the greenhouse protection has helped I thought the white one slightly tender ??

Thanks Gnarly gnome:-), this seems just as hardy as the pink, have three others grown from cuttings from this one dotted around in other areas of the garden, and all are doing great, I planted them out the autumn before the winter of 2010/2011 they were still fairly small but survived that winter fine :-)
Yes I have a couple of deep pink too grown from cuttings from mother-in-laws garden :-), was going to say bet your bees love it but you've moved them now haven't you, my memory :-))
Is Gnarly gnome on its journey then? ;-)

Mmm yes £40 euros is a bit expensive, unless its rarely available?
My ribes has so many different varieties of bumble bee on it, never realised there were soooo many, we all go a bit woozy when we've had too much to drink Gnarly must be the same for bees, lol, :-))
