DD, I know a long time to wait, but I'm believing there will be a tomorrow and I will see it to flowering! From a most helpful nursery in Scotland. Bought a couple of other plants to make the cost of postage seem more justified.
I had a 'bee in my bonnet' about the 'not nigrum' . Nigrum in my head became the must-have plant. I know it's toxic but heho, so's life at present.

I have to decide where to put it, as the space where it was to go is taken with Not-nigrum, maybe the west side of the garage, which is rendered beige. Flowers would show up nicely there.
