Our Brazen Hussy is in fairly deep shade and it has stayed bronze and flowered ok for quite a few years. They are funny in some ways, we had a good collection of the different forms at one stage, but all but that one and the cream one disappeared. Wish I could say the same for the ordinary one.

Have you tried the I Frank Elder or I Sheila Ann Germaney, or the I K Hodgkin dark form? The first too are very similar to Kathryn,and I have only seen the latter in shows.

If you only take water from the tap at the bottom of a water butt then spray the top with WD40, that stops them breeding.

This tine font is very hard to use and check the spelling as one goes along.

Iris K. Hodgkin is not like a lot of the other dawrf Spring flowering Iris (reticulata species and forms), it makes nice clumps and spread well.  It obviously does grow well from dried bulbs, hence the millions on sale in Autumn.  I would want to wait untiil the leaves had gone before I dug them up though. Possibly oonce they have begun to go yellow might be ok. Otherwise, why not take up the clump and put it in a pot until they have died down, at least them you know where they are.

The different colours of Ranunculus ficaria are not as invasive as the straight species. We have a very pale cream one which  has not increased in  volume over the last 10 years or so.

What do you think I have been using for the last 5 years,Verdun? I get the Professional strength stuff from our local Farm Supply place. I have tried mixing it with Verdone as well to see if the extra oomph will work.

Mind you. Lysimachia Firecracker is almost as bad as is Lemon Balm.
