Lespedeza thunbergii

I treated myself to this in August. It has been full of flower ever since. It is about five feet high with lovely arching branches.

It WAS a lovely plant. Unfortunately I lost it during the bad winter last year. I am looking out for a replacement and have left the space free in the border for when I find one. I will then lift it and put it into the greenhouse for the winter, hoping I have more success!

Hope you find a replacement Pasuki and it over winters for you! ;0)

Thanks for your comments Pansypotter and Skipscanda1. In the end I didn't need a replacement! I went to dig up the old plant in July, thinking that I wasn't going to find another one locally and would use the space for something else, and found new shoots emerging. How lucky that I hadn't already dug it up! It flowered again in late september and october. I'm hoping that it will be ok now that it's older and more established... fingers crossed for this year!
