A for


Beautiful deep red. Luxuriant and velvety.

Planted shortly after Christmas we watched the shoots grow in anticipation. Two stems either four blooms on each. Glorious colour and two seed heads later the leaves appeared little by little. 

But what’s that?


To our total surprise another little bud was appearing. 


It grew and outpaced the leaves. 

  Last night it began to open


Only two buds but a real bonus
