I grow silver swan Brum
Silver n white n grey,foliage,currently,hosting,pale yellow flowers. Will cut them off soon. Mine is about 3 ' tall
Good drainage but better on better soils. But, easy plant. Easy on the eye and nice addition to the garden
Mine is alongside prunus cistena crimson dwarf.

Libertias....who knows em?

Oh dear.meant to say, buy the new hybrids.
And, split them every two years
Then they are lovely. I have never found, goldfinger, taupe blaze, etc to be invasive in any sense
Clearly, I'm in the minority on this one

Fairygirl, dierama is the perfect garden pool plant. The reflection of linear diaphonous white flowers in clear water on a sunny day is magic.

I grow grass-like, uniquely-coloured, white flowering libertias. Who else does? They are evergreen, tough, grow almost anywhere and nothing else looks quite like them. Front of the border or in the middle, libertias add contrast and form. Somebody will surely ask you what it is if you grow it Right now I have some contrasting with hellebores, daffs, etc etc. and would not want to be without them The leaves have red, gold, olive and bronze shades. Check them out

Terry,, I have said my piece. Lilyloiuse is making total sense so take notice of what she says.
Most people do not like to complain but we all have to at times
I would expect you to get your money back and keep what you have.
The sooner you complain the easier and more effective it is
Keep us informed

Fairygirl, astrantias won't like constant wet feet....added grit would be good idea. Heuchera marmalade or Caramel sound similsr to your lost ones and do well for me.
