I have two. Bought this last spring from a specialist at a plant fayre, they have grown okay but no flowers, and they were 2nd year plants. This is the one plant I would love to be able to grow but can't. This is my last attempt.
They are in a bed with dappled shade in moist slightly ericaceous compost, planted with well rotted farm yard manure, watered with rain water if needed, and misted with seq" iron as per growers instructions. I've spoken to them nicely, sworn at them and to no avail.
I haven't actually seen one in flower I know Punkdoc on the forum can grow them. Fidgetbones has some but I think her blue ones turned a different colour this year
I know they grow well in Scotland and the Lake District but they don't like me or my garden
They do grow in the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield but weren't in flower when I went. Good job or I'd have been in trouble for picking one
