Prob grow well in excess of 7' tina.  4' is not likely. after flowering just remove the flowered stems back to new shoots.  You need to give them reasonable space or they will look awful esp if you try to prune simply to reduce size

Bit  slow on the uptake it blue blueberries seem to be disappearing and then it dawned when I saw my local friendly blackbird there.  A net is now in place.

Thanks Winter.  

It's  the camera on the ipad....haven't figured it out yet why pictures publish upside down. However, if you press the photos twice they  enlarge and publish as normal.  Yes, my phone takes lousy photos that I am never happy with so I guess I will persevere with ipad for the quality

Topbird, eulhorbia rubra cragieburn.....think its an improvement on usual rubra.  Anemone white swan...ironically I had just cut that back for fuller flush later. It has been superb since May.  Heuchera Obsidion.  Think the astrantia is hadspen blood....I have so many.   Carex Testacea.

Lovely at times.  

lot of time taken up with sorting issues for my stroke affected cousin.  Hospital spoke about discharging him in a day or so but his son asked me to intervene.  To cut a lomg story short we have arranged 3 or 4 sessions of apeech therapy and same for physio on his arm and for him to remain in hospital for a week to 2 weeks lomger.  Despite his stroke being over a week ago he has had NO therapy or physio.  .???  Fun n games trying to see a doc too........mild aggression helps to get things sorted
