I wanted to buy this beautiful plant from Beth Chatto’s exquisite nursery in Essex. Unfortunately they were sold out. But a staff member came up with a novel solution. Off he went to raid Beth Chatto’s own personnel plant! Minutes later he returned grinning and with a handful, announcing that ‘should do you’. It most certainly did. The plant is now flourishing beautifully in my own garden. I will forever have a little piece of Beth Chatto. Now that is what I call service. It has proved to be a reliable grower and adds much needed colour at the end of the gardening season. A must for outdoors and indoors as cut flower, and one for the bees.
