Thanks all - it is dark - I seem to remember it being a wee bit lighter - that may happen yet! Plantaholic posted a picture of a very similar one with the darker flowers.
Another wee beauty from Binnys Scotsgran!

I have not been up there for ages. I'd need to buy the 5 acre field behind us if I came out with everything I like. I suspected that was where you got it. The big GC's don't sell specials like this.

Thanks Paul, Plantaholic and Lil :)
I'm sure you admired this last year HB - think we had a discussion on where to source.
Sticki - this is in it's 2nd year - I have 3 and they were just tiny wee things last year - they have doubled in size already. I have to say is the nicest looking one - the others are not as floriforous as the moment!
