Nice bright flower heads on your Sedum. What is the variegated plant behind it? Too small for a Weigela.

That's a shame Dd these last for ages!
That's Lysimachia 'Alexander' Siris has yellow flowers but they finished a while ago now, the foliage is lovely, in spring when it first starts to grow it has pink in it too.

That sounds nice Simbad, looks fairly compact, the brown leaved one runs a bit.

It isn't to much of a spreader Siris you just have to keep your eye open for reverted green stems,I've just spent a whole afternoon digging out a clump that reverted and I stupidly left forgetting how rampant it was!! , I'll sort you a piece out if you like?

Thank you Simbad, I would appreciate a piece sometime. Think my brown leaved is called Firecracker, has the usual yellow flowers. Have you got that one?
Reversion is a nuisance, eventually out grows the original, unless you keep an eye on it. I have a variegated Pyracantha, get a reverted piece on that and it's away.
Ps Iris Scented Blue is obviously a remountant, there is a flower bud forming, perhaps 3 weeks till it opens.

OK then :-), yes I do have Firecracker love it but yes it's a bit of a wanderer .
Talking of variegated plants I found a seedling near euphorbia Black Pearl same reddy stems but cream and blue/green leaves , I hope it stays this way, fingers crossed, could be a new plant!! , I won't get to excited yet as it's only tiny.
Ooooo I have a bud forming on one of your iris which looks pale blue I must check which it is in my records.

That will be exciting, if the Euphorbia remains true you could have it named after you.
I think scented Blue was the only blue I sent you, it came from my French Sis in law. But White Immortality, which is a known rebloomer, looks pale blue in bud.
