    It's only just getting established if it was planted in spring. It may not flower this year at all, or you may get the odd spike later.
    Perennials establish quite quickly, but it takes a few years for them to reach their full potential.  :)

    No probs. It should give you a good display next year once it's settled in  :)

    Some RHPokers eg K.rooperii don't flower until Sept /OCT.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Ours aren't in flower yet (no idea the variety) and they have been in situ for many years.
    They flower Aug/Sept for us.

    Thanks Bertrand-mabel  We do have about 6 shoots at about 5inches high which have grown already.  Chuffed to bits.  :)

    Well, that’s looking splendid … even on its side 😊
