It will come up thru tarmacadam. It is a thug, but a lovely one, I can forgive for it's flowers. You can always dig out the excess.

Such a splash of colour though. Is it scented?

No scent on this one, not sure about other forms.

How are you getting on with your "thug" SBG? I must admit its a little different from the hybrids..leaves slightly more pointy? Anyway I like it!

this over winters no problem at all. It is showing new growth and is creeping through the border.

Do you want some tetrarch? You are more than welcome :o)
