love these, i got one last year and was delighted to find it has survived the winter and has a little 'mouse' on it! Im not sure mine has such a distinctive white colouring on it though.

Surreylad - I hope that it does spread like buggery!
ps; need your address again for the hedychium.

It is ideal for your shade Sticki! Just what I need it for.

I love this plant too, mines planted in the wood and been happy in there for 3 years now even starting to spread a bit now, I don't mind how far it spreads either Surreylad :-)
