You're convincing me. Things are looking good out there
There is a very wet area - heavy clay bog - of the garden and about the only thing that has flourished there is Acorus Ogon which is looking really lovely and bright at the moment. Started off with one plant which I immediately divided and now have plenty!
Thanks Verdun, it would be nice to have something that has a different autumn colour. I usually find plenty of self seeded primulas around the garden so could move some of those there as well.
Pineapplesage is Monty's plant of the week, in his regular rag feature. Monty refers to it as a risky plant as it isn't very hardy and can be blacken by frost. It's best grown under protection and coming from Central America needs summer heat in July and August to produce flowers. Here in the NW, July and August were a wash out with very little sun.
Sounds like your's is planted out in the garden, has it not suffered from the poor weather we've had this year and how are you over wintering it...
