They are wonderful flowers at this time of year. I decided to wait until tomorrow to photograph mine. The colour is great isn't it?

I only received this yesterday, already in bloom. My pink ones are not blooming yet.

We have a large clump that must be divided, so there will always be some available B-)

I do better putting plants into the garden, where they belong, than confining them to pots, unless they are tender. Dd
Ps. Was surprised how tall Major is compared to my pinks, perhaps the name gives a clue!
