Growing beautifully - nothing to beat them.

Not at all! You should be proud, they look so pretty. Love the mixing of the colours too, they compliment each other.

They're doing well growing in the grass.

You've every right to be Lori, they're fantastic! Always wanted to grow these properly, but the rust got to them every time. Yours are just the best, and so happy there..
Love the pinks ones on the left..

it's always nice to have the support of fellow gardeners in an obsession... lol.. Amy, I am positive that some of these came from seed you sent me! I'll have to pm you with the details of this.
I found that they get less rust when underplanted, Hywel. I have glechoma and creeping jenny planted under them...it grows over the gravel and rocks and protects the plants from the splash back that starts the rust! years of experience at this...it works. Alas, a thunderstorm and heavy rain has sent some of them sprawling... I've never had to stake them before.
