A patens variety PP.  nice.  Remember it is likely to be tender where you are so treat like a dahlia to over wimter.


snap AuntyRach.......it was geum Totally Tangerine that encouraged me more to orange. 


What you like Fairy?  Not liking blue?    Keep forgetting you are in a colder darker place and blue does shine in sun.  Meconopsis Baleyii??

Talking about me Ladybird ?   Ha ha 


Have to disagree with you though..watering every day IS important for pots and hanging baskets . Rain is never enough

PP, blue goes with yellows, reds, grey/silver foliage, purple foliage.  Do you know the variety?

Aphids are prob the cause baza.  cut back, spray  and feed.  try it.  Let us know how you get on 


at least in future remember to cut back when flowering begins to falter

Once had a large freebie magenta rhododendron cos the owner didnt like the colour.  It has occupied a large pot in my garden for past .5 years and is superb 


a friend of mine said she "hated yellow flowers".......When she later saw my (yellow) heleniums, dahlias, coreopsis, argyranthemums, kniphophias, echinaceas, hypericums,,etc. etc. she begged for cuttings of them all 


others do not like blue flowers; a neighbour won't grow white flowers;  and orange is a big no to many.


for me, all colours are acceptable...we just need to associate them well.

Yes, trim them back.....if they are sticky (aphids) spray with organic insecticide then water and feed.  Just watch them recover
