Topbird, they all flowered in their first year.  I sifted firstly through the foliage quality and then flower colours

I have lots of hellebores that fill much of the space in winter.  I cut off flowers in spring and room is left for the summer perennials.  It makes for a relatively low maintenance garden.  The wider a border the easier it is I think.  A narrow border is hard work, disappointing at different seasons and every plant has to earn its keep for a long time.

understanding how big a plant will be,,how tall,,how it spreads etc., when its at its best, helps then in putting plants together.

If true, that's a shame Dove about Bressingham

never a fan of Red Ace Hosta.  One I did like, Royal Flush, was one I tried for ages to get and it was, for me amyway, a weak grower

Very unusual plant

They grow huge down here.  20 feet see them everywhere. Planted some seedlings for a friend a couple of weeks back.  Stand back...they are jack n the beanstalk plants 

i understand it takes 2 years to flower then dies.
