Louise, juniper blue star.  It's as blue as any foliage plant,  it's compact, it's easy. It's adaptable. It will never outgrow it's space but if it did it can be pruned. Get a Spirea goldflame next to it for spectacular colour from spring to autumn,  

Lychnis chalcedonica - vesuvius

Coronaria is divided every year to produce a "permanent" plant.  For me it's the best of the bunch.....lovely grey, almost evergreen,  foliage and flowers all summer.  There are better reddish foliage perennials than Vesuvius .....heucheras, geranium black beauty, penstemon huskers red, euphorbia rubra, etc

Was sent a wrongly named helenium from Perennials of Distinction.  Excellent plant but not until late summer, when it flowered, that I realised the error.  no quibble and no excuses and a replacement is promised next month.  contact with this firm was pleasant and I'm sure replacement will arrive as promised.

I like Nigel too.  Like my own dog. Like my brother"s dog........most dogs actually. But GW is not, should not be, about a dog.  I can share hostafans's hate mail now . (mind you, I shouldn't jest.  Animal rights supporters are amongs the most dangerous on the planet)

Moistish soil I think Dove.  some geraniums need experimenting with I think to be at their best.  Even with best research some of them defy the theory. have a similar geranium in black beauty ...lovely this.....that was moved a few times before I was satisfied.

Morning gillian

Yes I've grown Vesuvius.  Grew it mainly for foliage colour.  Nice plant but no more than an annual for me.
