That is lovely, I have lots of the pink ones but just cannot seem to get any red to grow for me, tried again last year so seeing yours has given me hope that I just might have some red this year.Gerardine....

I’m the opposite have had patty’s plum I think it’s called for years and it’s flowered once.
I’ve been surprised a few times this year Kate.I’ve had two camellias this poppy and I see a peony rose that was in this garden when I came here has buds for the first time in about 5 years.I moved it and it didn’t flower again.
