Hi Hywel

well that was a popular thread NOT lol .

Its yellow loosestrife , I have the variegated form already which grows best in full sun so I bought this for a shadier awkward spot spot in the garden as I know it should do oki sh and thats what arrived !!! just that one piece of root lol !!!! I thought it was a mistake but after the return email I had from them , thats the normal size !!

I didn't comment on you purchase, because I was not happy with a purchase I revived from that supplier and was unable to contact them to complain!
Ps, Gg I have Lysimachia ciliata Firecracker if you would like some.

Hi Siris

Yes all the plants I bought from them are dreadful the size of the box they came in was huge as well lol talk about fool me .... I didnt spend much with them and wont bother again ... they did tell me if anything fails to grow they will replace , just look at that root photo lol how on earth they thought that was acceptable to send out is beyond me.

Firecracker looks very nice and another new variety to me
