These are such beautiful, delicate flowers - they look stunning in the early morning/late evening sunshine and really light up shady patches. Be warned that blackfly love the young plants, so keep a careful watch on them, but they are definitely worth it.

Two of the plants have grown well, but only flowered a very small amount. Hoping next years display will be much better. Disappointingly the third plant died about a month ago. All plants treated the same and grown in the same flowerbed.
