Leycesteria is a thug though...down here anyway. Not an easy neighbour for less vigorous residents. My neighbour has it...luckily a big wall between us....and it is over 15'

Jo, I grow one in each container. If I remember I will post some pictures
The "secret" is ..,the larger the tuber the bigger the plant will be

My Dahlias are a bit pathetic...

The Bishop ...superb here. Hardy and reliable.
Sowed seeds of The Bishop's Children a few years back and these produced red and orange flowers on same purple foliage. The foliage has different shades of purple and different leaves. I selected the best and discarded the rest
Jo, all of them are bee friendly but consider sowing some seed.
