Moved here in November, so hadn't got to grips with the soil and weather. This plant has done well for its first year, but is perhaps six inch's tall. Have grown in in previous gardens where it was much taller. However it is its first year and a very dry one at that. I am pleased to have it and feel sure that once accustomed to its situation it will grow taller!
