I love this Kathy. I think I might seek this out. I need a couple more for my pink and blue border. I have a couple in flower as well. The 'White Bedder' is ever so pretty right now, and 'Garnet' is also flowering..

If they keep on flowering, does that mean they flower themselves to death?

Glad you all like it :-), it is a bit more purple than the pictures showing a pretty murky day so the flash kept going off.
Yes Driad they do seem to be flowering very late like Karen I also still have flowers on White Bedder and also lots of flowers on Tall bi-color Sensation , long may they last!!.
I've grown a couple of new ones from seed this year Dd but it'll be next year before they flower , exciting :-)
Thanks Siris and Dawn :-)
Oh I hope these go on all winter Amy, brighten the gloom, yesterday I spotted snowdrops poking through in the wood !! So our job for today is to move the logs and branches from trees Robs been chopping before any more show and get trampled!,
