I love the form of this, and the velvety bits! It's one of those flowers that you have to get close to, to see its beauty.

Thanks - I had the same trouble, but a friend in the village gave me some of hers and they flower.

Ahead of mine - they're still in bud.

SBG - I've found them easy to flower, although they usually take a season to settle in. They like to be deep but dislike acidic soil and summer wet. I do ignore the bit about them needing full sun as they've always done fine for me in partial shade.

Mine are in partial shade, Meanie. I have to smile wryly about the wet. They didn't quite get drowned, but very soggy. :-((

Interesting about the wet bit Spritz. I put two clumps in at my old house - one in the border and the other in a raised bed next to them. The ones in the raised bed thrived, yet the ones 40/50cm to their right in the ordinary bed were hit and miss. But yours seem ok with summer wet, so I need to rethink.

I wouldn't, Meanie. My garden drains very well, so they didn't stand in water for very long each time.
