You make a good point Hosta - mine's quite sprawly.

As Steve says, mine's doing well in shade under the trees providing it gets a bucket of water in dry spells.

Rescued mine from the 'Nearly Dead' section for thruppence about 18 months ago.  A bit of decent soil and some food and water and it's romping away

Bb, it's Athyricum niponicum 'Pewter Lace' - one of the Japanese Painted Ferns

Think I bought it from Notcutts.

Chrissy, it's not a tradescantia - it's a Roscoea purpurea bought from Carrie Thomas at Touchwood http://www.touchwoodplants.co.uk/aquilegias.htm

And don't clear them all up - leave some in some 'untidy areas' - the hedgehogs need them to build their hibernaculums (hibernacula ).
