I remember seeing a driver turn his car in town square and hitting a brand new car yet drove off. A queue of people waiting for the bank to open and lots of others around but nobody did anything.  I gave chase on foot,,much to the embarrassment of my then very young nephew, and stopped the car. got him to leave his written details and I got witness names.  Hero or what?  Ha ha 

people SHOULD stop, hold their hands up and do the right thing.  It annoys me when they don't.

Very aggressive here Nut but in a cold place they prob wont be.  After a year their chunky roots had ventured quite widely.  They are good in large pots though.  You can divide them every couple of years and flower seems unaffected.

actually, I gave mine away to someone who has a few acres so I might get a piece of two back to plant in pots.  Had yellow,,orange and white vwrieties.

hope you appreciated my ginger nut joke back there
