I wondered who'd read its species name and think of John Wyndham, Grindle! As long as it doesn't pull up its roots and walk around, that's fine by me! LOL.

4 Oct, 2009

I have planted a purple Aster behind it - 'Purple Dome'. The label says it grows to 1.2m. but it's not tall at the moment, or in flower yet. Looks a lovely colour from the buds, though! I don't want anything too tall to take away the impact...
