    @Obelixx thank you I’ll have a look. I took some stems to get seeds from but nothing!  :(

    Good luck.   I found them not hardy enough for my last garden as they can only cope down to -5C at best.  Rural central Belgium gets -15C and much worse.  Haven't tried them here yet as I haven't got a moist bed, but I will have one day because I need to make a home for my gunnera and a rodgersias.

    I’ve got them but they’re late flowering and the seeds haven’t ripened, whether they will, I don’t know, if you want to hang on a bit I’ll see, we just need some dry days.  They’re easy from seeds, mine were grown from seed.
