O Holy Night....surprisingly, by the incredible Michael Crawford

alternatively, I like an ethnic version... Jana Mashonee

Salino what did you order from BeaLes? Did you see the black Friday weekend half price offers? I have ordered Jacqueline de pre and one other! Can't think now and if I come out of this posting I'll lose it!  It sounded Hawaiian!

hi Beaus Mum,

sorry I've only just seen your message here... I like Aloha very much...grew that some years ago... don't know your other one...

I've got a few on the way including if I remember...

Souvenir de la Malmaison

Octavia Hill

and Tipsy Imperial Concubine - bit of a strange one

hope yours do well for you...

Paeonia delavayi

I think you should look at Paeonia suffruticosa varieties...

you might like one of these... at a price...


Now then, now then....

..I'm delighted to hear they rung you back about it, still a slight mystery surrounds it,  but that makes it more interesting I think... lost in the mists of time...

..thanks for letting us all know...

..presumably they won't mind if you propagate and sell on.... in which case I think I should have one.....FREE..!  lol
