I started this from seed years ago, and after a long battle with my nemesis
(mites), here is the first (although a bit tatty) jewel:
Congratulations DimWit. what a beautiful baby!
Well done and it will be even more beautiful next year.
It's gorgeous. Well done.
Nice one, which one is it?
is it Durrandii?
It is a C. integrifolia from Thompson & Morgan. I moved it a couple of times
to find out where it best suited it. Recently I added a mulch of shredded cardboard,
and it seems to please the little beast!
All the better for your ample tlc! Enjoy!!
I have lots of integrifolia seeds from blue, white and pink forms if anyone wants a few to try, no charge, but please note they do not come true from seed, so you never know what you will end up with, they are all super plants for the mixed herbaceous border, reliably hardy, flowering July to September, ranging in height from 1 ft to 4 or 5 ft.
Named forms, of which there are many, can be propagated by division.
