I like them just a little way in because the green stays fairly low and the flower spikes shoot up about 3ft, adding structure. Do take some cuttings next Spring though, they root so easily and will flower the same year. I have the dark leaf one, thats the spikes over on the left, paler blue.  It looks much the same here but it is darker leafed.

 Edited to add, these are in shade almost all day, just sun late afternoon, its a damp old corner.

I cant take any credit for it, its work by a friend of my OH. There will soon be loads of plants in there, they will come naturally, its probably already got loads of frogs, newts toads etc, it was a big bog before, you couldnt walk on it. All the rain drains down from the hill and the water also rises. Maybe we will look next year and compere photo's

Daisy, yours look lovely, we are building one but its still a work in progress.

Its lovely, so tranquil, its on his private land but locals do go to walk there.

He has put some plants in there, water lillies and other plants. It will be stunning in another years time.
