There seem to be two types on sale here, Kath...Chinese or Japanese. I chose Japanese - only because they were bigger plants...I didn't do any research. Might one sort be slower growing than the other?

The yellow one Karen I bought out of a Hospital walled garden 6yrs ago they were selling them for £5 but unknown no name all I knew it was yellow.

And a garden buddie friend posted me a pink bare root one last week she got it free with plants she had bought and did not want it.

It arrived poorly from the supplier as it had been sent to me and was never opened.

When I too it out of package it had been around for some time and look as if was starting to rot on closer inspection it was like old moss in centre of plant .

I duly took this out gave a lot of TLC as it was also bone dry and new leaves were white searching for light.

I have not got it planted in ground and its now being soaked with rain .

Lets see how it progresses.

That's an interesting web-site, Kath. I'm not sure if I made the right decision or not now, with the Japanese...

Swings and round-abouts, I think. Elegance versus vigour and perfume...

Well, if your new little one comes on from there it'll probably turn out to be a strong plant. Fingers crossed for you.
