Will take a look at nursery next time I'm there Verd- which will no doubt be soon! They could be good in my new areas as they won't get loads of mid day sun there. I love dark foliage- great with yellows and oranges, and white flowers of course , which will be the dominant 'colour' in the new beds.
MrsG- I'd stick the Verbs out somewhere not too sunny in a suitable bed or border. They should make some more growth, but if you're worried just put them into bigger pots and you can plant them out next year. I've got quite a few in various sizes in pots and they'll probably stay there till spring as I don't have a border that's right for them at the moment.
