I have a few and have noticed the ones with red flowers have the best autumn colour - not sure what flowers Harry has?.  Diana is a good one for red flowers.  Pallida has big yellow flowers, but the leaves just go yellow in the autumn, as opposed to red and orange like the others - hope this helps

Morning all

Glad Lizzie is safely home after a good trip

One more day in the office, one wfh and then .....Berlin here I come.  Best start some lists and making some little piles of stuff to pack .....yes, I know it is only for 3 days, but the packing phobia kicks in with me even for an overnight stay

What are you getting rid of...?

My bearded irises are on borrowed time - although I expect they will get another "just one more year" to prove themselves.  And my thalictrum Elin's got very floppy and were a pretty insipid colour - so they might have to go.  Apart from that I was a pretty happy chick this year

Morning all.  Was -1 when i got home last night, but we have had rain since, so no frost here.  GH is now finally airtight though - so now my plants will stay cosy "whatever the weather"

I don't know anything about ad blockers - think you got me confusled with someone else Woody
