Take the trouble to source out Potters Wheel.  Much bigger flowers.  Far more impressive.  ........

H. ericsmithii is 

"... A garden hybrid between H. niger x H. x sternii, formerly known as "H. x nigristern", which is itself a hybrid between H. argutifolius and H. lividus..."

No wonder I sometimes get confused

Hi Granma

There's been a technical problem on the forum for the past couple of days - the avatars have disappeared and there's a problem with PMs and My Posts etc.

Nora (one of the office team) has informed the Tech Team and they are doing their best to resolve it as soon as possible.

I think that the problem with some small charities is that they rely on retired people to do their accounts etc - some have been retired quite a long time and may not have been very up to date even when they were working

I think it's lovely to know that the Red Admiral's original name had no naval connotations - it was originally known as an Admirable - isn't that great!
