    The seeds of the cultivars don't come true, you're right Verdun. But you can get some nice plants. Hadspen Blood gives mostly nice red ones but obviously not Hadspen Blood.

    Thank you f2. Please see pm image

    Thank you Verdun for your comments, means a lot from you as a true expert image

    I totally understand about looking into their faces and they are like beautiful jewels 

    My utmost favourite is the last one, I love the green and pink, gorgeous image

    Bit annoyed with myself as have got most of the original labels but don't know which one goes with what! Oh what a narna! image

    I'm planning to revamp the garden after the summer so will def have a go at dividing as some of the clumps are pretty big now.  Unlike you I don't like the variegated one image If you would like please pm me.  It's not in the pics but it's leaves are yellow green and white, I'll take a pic later 

    Florence rings a bell, I'll have a look and see if I have image

    I have 'discovered' Astrantias this year after visiting stone cottage.  I now have two Romas and 1 Venice, still very small.  The other plant I really like at the moment is the knautia its like a cross between an astrantia and a scabious very pretty.  I have bought a a very dark burgandy one that has beautiful green and cream varigated leaves.

    It is a perennial or so I was told, the variety is Thunder and Lightening.

    I've got one heuchera left in the garden Verdun that has done rubbish past couple of years, it's purplish one so when I have big move around I shall do as you say image

    yviestevie knautia is my new addiction for this summer! But didn'tknow what they were called, I just thought they were scabious, I love love love them image

    Looked up the one you have and looks lovely

    Without searching out the labels I do not know what names I have but the colours are pastels, burgundy reds and deep pinks image We will have to start a new thread addiction for them image
