Doesn't it just take your breath away?!

Is that one in the garden or a pot, Abwal?

I wonder where mine is? It flowered last season but I haven't seen any flowers lately. I've got too many pots and I tend to lose track of things.

This one is in a pot, Pam. I think we may have lost the ones in the garden during all the rain. I am keeping some of the hippies in pots as our soil does not drain well in very wet weather.

Actually we did not lose them. This one is in the garden.
