Is this prostrate, Andrew? P. 'Tom Thumb' that I have seen is to about 2 ft. This looks fantastic.

No Vincent, it's about three feet tall

That's excellent news.

Ah! Optical illusion (or failing eyesight)

I wasn't sure either, Vincent.
I kept thinking - Am I seeing height, depth or both? Lol.
Can you clarify, please, Andrew, if it has significant depth?

Mouldy - the RHS Book says three feet tall and two feet wide

I'd say mine is three feet high and three feet wide, possibly more where it has crept under neighbouring shrubs and searched for the light

Yes, it definately looks more abundant than the RHS specs.
Have you thought of measuring, then approaching them to rectify their record?
