Don't forget to let them seed, they're biennials and will die after flowering. You'll have lots more in the future

Yes they are (were) mine GD

I don't grow them, too dry, but there's nothing to see on a lot of hardy perennials at this time. Just last year's dead growth

PS musher, Thinking about the recommended deep planting, that's probably for those grafted ones in  Rhod's link.

Still can't really see how that works

I have a yellow that is beautiful in leaf but the others only impress when in flower or when the seedpods open, not long enough for me. I dumped a mucky yellow one, the only thing in its favour was that I grew it from seed. There's another similar on the hit list for next year. I think they're crosses between the red and the yellow and have the worst of both.

I've got another one I grew from bought seed that started putting up a flower in January, it looks a bit sad now and may not open. Pity, I want to know what colour it is. I want a white one

That's quite early for honesty. I have a few tiny flowers on tiny plants that probably won't go any further but the main flowering is a long way off.

Maybe you'll get this later

Interesting Rhod, I'll look into that.

Musher, they just grow here. I don't plant them deeply, they choose their own depth when the germinate. I don't do anything except cut off dead bits and and any squashing something else.

That RHS link says they don't flower so well in shade but I find they do, and for longer.
