I have lots of these blooming now too Shirley_tulip. Very cheerful. How do they behave in your garden? I do have to control them somewhat.

They are good fillers here...

K, this is the one and only plant of this genus that I have in the garden. Since planting it, I have read that it can spread by rhizomes and I should keep a look out for 'suckers'! Time will tell . . . :o)

Julia, that's good to know. Do you find them a bit 'thuggish' at all?

I like these but they like my garden too much. I too have to keep them under control.

Oh dear, I may have made a mistake with this then . . . :o(

Shirley,where they are planted they are fairly contained...they are easy to pull out.

Very pretty, I used to have this in my first garden, though this looks more delicate. Great for the bees..:0))

Janey, I have really tried to plant with wildlife in mind and am really pleased to see so many Bees on the flowers now.

I haven't seen this for sale round here. It's pretty.

Anget, I ordered it on-line through Secret Gardening Club. I have just looked at some reviews of the company, as I have not ordered for some while from them and am surprised at the very differing reviews! Most of the plants I have had from them are very good . . . :o)

That's good to know.

I like the strong yellow colour, Shirley. Pretty flowers, very cottagey summer garden.

Kate, the area this is planted in was just lawn when we came here, we tried it as a veg. patch but it was too shady, so now it is a 'shrubbery' for want of a better term!

t really needs thinning out though as I can hardly walk through on the little stepping stones without brushing against plants and/or shrubs! . . . :o(
