Thanks Patsy for teaching me a new word.
You're welcome, Rachna.
Ah, but remember the movie Day of the Triffids?
I do vaguely, Alex - OK, I exaggerated. This plant isn't really triffid-like.
You'll probably manage quite well without adding this word to your vocabulary, Mac.
It#s really pretty - and the way it turns inside out is positively flaunting!
It's a floral floozy, Lizy.
And it's got your favourite colour too, Patsy. :-)
There are quite a few purple flowers in my garden, Carol.
I like all words that start with Quad.
I'll have to find you some more, Maria.
What a gorgeous plant - I want one! Will it flourish in West Cork, do you think?
I think it might, Susan - you have it fairly mild there, don't you?They seem to take ages to get established, but then take off at speed.
Thanks so much for commenting!
