Thanks everyone for all youe help and advice. Inkadog - I hope I manage to get some cuttings, it is a beautiful plant, don't have a greenhouse just yet (but my birthdays coming up) so will all be indoors this year! Kate - Thanks fo the links, I will look into them, they look really pretty too. As i've just started out, All the flowers I have planted, all seem to flower at the same time, so I need to do a bit more research into what else to plant out, so the colour keeps coming throughout the year. I thought the succulents would keep it green at least instead of having lots of empty pots. I made my own large wooden planters this year (3 1/2 feet high, 4 feet wide and deep) I will be gutted when the first frost comes and everything dies off! Don't suppose you can become a gardener overnight, i'm sure it takes years of experience to get it right. Thanks again to everyone x

Yes the 1st one has done really well, the dog manages to knock the top off them all the time, I re-pot the part that's fallen off and they grow on really well. The only problem now is like you say, finding window sill space! I will have a fare few to bring indoors. Yes your right, def need to start looking into plants before I buy them!I just love the look of these types. My aim was a few pots of evergreen, without going for bushes. (as all need to be in pots, large or small) thank you very much for yoy help and advice x

Apologies for the delay, i've had to bring them in to get pic's, too dark outside now. I have a few of these dotted about the garden, all in pots.

Thanks also Kate1123, the last thing I want to do is kill it now, it's taken me that long to find out what it is, so tonight, it will be cosy indoors! I have a few similar types, again, not 100% sure what they are, but they seem to be doing well outside at the moment and multiplying quite rapidly. (possibly alpine types or something similar) I would think they may also need to be inside over winter. Not going to be much room in the house by the time i've finished! I'm new to gardening, now I have a garden and seem to have gone for all the high maintenence plants, suppose it helps if you know what they are and how to look after them! A lesson to be learned I think.

Thank you so much, now I know what it is, I can do my research! I have potted it 50% grit and 50% compost. I will need to bring it in then for now before the frost sets in and hopefully we will have a nice summer for it to go back out and flower. Thanks again x

Can anyone please tell me what this plant is??? is it suitable for outdoors?, if so what protection is needed over winter? can i take cuttings, if so how? I bought it and have no idea what it is, I just thought it looked lovely! No tags on it to identify it or how to look after it. Please help, any information would be very helpful!
