Did it flower Chris?

Sadly no. A small leaf has come up for the past 2 Springs and then died away.

Sorry to hear that - I wonder why that is? Is it getting enough sun? Is it competing with other plants? I don't know much about them I'm afraid, except they like for the roots to be baked by the sun... Mine are growing in fairly poor/dry soil and are a bit out of control these days lol But I know from reading on here that some varieties are more vigorous than others.....Nancym has a pinky one that has not flowered for 2 years.....might be a 'thing' with the pink ones maybe? I hope not coz I want a pink one!
