Think, have this one in my garden, but never known the name of it...Grown from the seeds and began to flower the second year...
Andrew, have this one in the woodland corner, are these conditions proper for it?

Uma - mine is growing in the same conditions as yours so that probably makes the answer 'yes'

Grows all over with me Andrew & Uma. I have several types variegated, white & mauve, plain leaf, white & mauve &, a slightly different one which I'll post tomorrow. Now my soil is very free draining black & sandy, it grows mostly in sun but sometimes shade.Seeds around very freely,flowering the following year.
