I fell for this a few years ago but it didn't survive. I hope yours does better!¬

That's a pretty variety.

Beautiful Andrew. I just have the blue so is this one not as hardy Stera? I so could be tempted!

Well I don't know whether it was less hardy or whether it just didn't like my garden. I did like it very much. Why not just try it and see - it was probably my fault.

I've given it the same growing conditions as the blue one (they are about six feet apart in the garden)

I am hoping mine is going to flower this year. missed last year.
