  6. We have that variety - brought it with us to Hastings from our old house in Birmingham, where it had formed a huge clump. Unfortunately it doesn't seem keen on the sea air - it comes up each year, but sparser each time.

  8. I had one but I think I have lost it to the wildernes! I must track down another when the garden gets sorted xxx
