On the sunnier side of the garden - miles ahead of the ones in the shady side.

Probably all the rain last year Michaela - they are spreading around my garden nicely :)
The Lily Beetle hasn't become a problem up here yet!!

Good to know they'll cope with sun AND shade.

They like a moist spot too Mouldy - well suited to growing in Scotland :)

What a lovely clump...

Yes DD2...clumping up nicely!

That's not a nice thing to say about me, ladies! Clump, indeed.
Oh, the flowers, I see. Lol.
I suspect, if they like a moist spot, Scottish, that they prefer shade, too?

Cope with both in my garden Mouldy. The one here are in full sun but will get shaded out by a Cotinus when it leaves up.

Excellent news.
I can just see them flanked with yellow, red & black tulips.
A real poke in the eye. Lol.

Stupid old Mouldy!
What are the white ones behind the frits, Scottish?
