I really like this.
How tall does it get please ?

I hope it will get to about 3 ft by late season. at the moment its only 18 ". I am surprised it has flowered so early but i did start it off in a pot in the greenhouse.

Thanks Seaburngirl.
Could you leave it out overwinter or do you always take it into the greenhouse to overwinter ?

sometimes i lift them and other times i just give them a deep mulch. as this is a new one for me i probably lift it after the first frosts. i often put them in big pots and then sink the pot into the ground up to the rim. makes lifting them so easy.

its got 4 flowers now but not much taller, so i will lift it and resite it next year. I really do like this flower though.

it really is amazing the amount of energy it must use to get to this stage, do they flower for long?
