These were planted in a dry, sunny border. They were ok, I think they struggled a bit with the intense heat. Hopefully they will do better next year once they have established.

Doing really well in the new long border. We are loving the feathery texture and long flowering period - still continuing.

Great service. Plants arrived carefully packed. Have grown on since planting, even with this years drought, and flowered well. Looking forward to even more flowers next year.

As with most new plants I have purchased this year the growth has been very slow, I put this down to the extreme heat. I hope I can keep them through the winter and do better next year.
