Hi, my brother in law bought a lovely plant this year but it has no label and he has no idea what it is - he just liked the colour!

 It has been flowering for months and I would love to know what it is and how to propagate it. Hope you can help. Thanks.

Hi Izzy, Thank you very much! This plant should do well in his garden, hopefully making it through the winter - SE England; close to town centre; sheltered, walled garden -  but would need to be taken indoors to make it through the winter in mine. Although I am only a few miles down the road from him my position is completely different. I will try to propagate  though as I have a sunny south facing wall I think it would like. Thanks again
