Thank you DCR726 .It always makes me chuckle at the difference in heights listed by each nursery and even the plant labels but I would hope the RHS know their stuff although i've been waiting four years for my Astrantia Major to make the height they state .I know that growing condition and light levels alter so much though :-)
I shall assume its a cool pinky purple and site accordingly. I always like to see things normally but these were a bargain.Many thanks for your reply :-)
