Verdun have you heard of this.... Dierama argyreum white flowers. Is it any good, is it worth investing in. I'm looking at the paddock plant site!

Seriously verdun I think you should start a thread that introduces new plants or old fashioned perennials people haven't heard of. Simply an explanation A picture your experience and how to propagate. I would be your number one fan. Just looked up aconitum and it's stunning and have never heard of it! Shame it's 1.2m. You must have a large garden!!

I was possibly thinking one for the back and 2 shaped in pots or one for the back and one for each bed at the front. It depends if I can source cheaper or better variety!!
