I bought anemone wild swan last summer. It flowered well until autumn. It's been flowering this year from spring looking wonderful. I cut it back ......just old stems....and it's now flowering again with plenty of buds. So, looks good plant.
Digitalis illumination pink was bought last autumn and overwintered in the GH, potting on few times until,planted out as large plants this spring. Flowering was excellent and attractive. Cut it back month or so ago and new flowers emerging. The real test will be over winter to see if they truly are perennial. So far I am very pleased with them
