Reviewed 12th October 2018 by Alex

I have had these for more than seven years in the same border, although this year with the extreme heat they had become very leggy. Have today cut them back to the second leaf bud from the ground and expect another wonderful season next year, Bought as small plants they are tenacious and well worth the few pounds l paid for them all that time ago.
