Helleborus Washfield Queen

First flowers, esp on young first year blooming, sometimes are misleading.  Further flowers later may produce better flowers.

however, I agree you should contact the supplier, express your disappointment and say you have a photo.  I think you may be pleasantly surprised to receive a replacement and still keep the plant you have.  Describe your plant as washed out looking and surely not indicative of the quality of plants your supplier has(?).

Totally agree with Obelixx .......those red srems need to be seen "through".  The purple continus too is so much more impressive when sun is behind its leaves.

however, yes it will grow there Charlie.  Perhaps paint your fence white!

Imperata can be damaged in winter.  I recall a few years back wanting these only to be told stocks were killed over winter.  However, I have plants never damaged over winter......mild s.w.   Winter wet is a threat so JamesO if your soil,is heavy I would consider a sheet of glass or a cloche

very critical of mpc these days. Edd.  Most are terrible I think.  Any long term composts for me will always be J I.

also feeding edible crops would mean organic fertilisers.
