I had the mauve ones and the white ones in the front garden at my previous house - very drought tolerant - they hardly got watered at all, and just kept on going. Self seed well too. At the moment I have three other colours in pots which are nowhere near as tough.

Nice photo. Looks like you are getting the new toy sorted out.

We have a very deep coloured variety that grows very vigorously.

Even the worst photographer gets a good shot every now and then. A bit like the golfer that took 167 to go around the course, but he will only want to talk about that "One Good Shot He Played On The Seventh" Freind of mine by chance discovered taking photo's at dusk, they turned out great. A lot of us learn by accident when it comes to photography and the same applies to gardening for that matter.
