Yes it is - there will be improvements before too long - they're working on getting it right.  

In the meantime, if I've got photos on my phone I email them to myself, save them on my laptop and then post them - but if you don't have a laptop or pc  you could email them to another forum member and they could post them for you.

Fridgetbones - G. Phaeum is supposed to be good for dry shade.  I purchased a couple this year from a local 'open garden' and was assured they were good for that position.  I will find out next year if that is the case. 

I've got Phaeum in the driest part of the Shady Bank, under the biggest ash tree - it seems very happy there and is self-seeding, so if anyone wants me to send them a few little ones send me a PM.

My sweetpea wigwam got badly bashed about in the winds we had a few days ago, but they're looking gorgeous again

 This Rozanne has been flowering for some weeks now - it's a great favourite with the honey bees.   This is a north facing bank so it's doing pretty well.
