            Not a plant we have ever managed to grow here which is why I did not recognise the leaves.

              I have the red variety which seeds with gay abandon but failed with the white variety. I agree with Pete that unless they are pretty small seedlings they do not move well and are not long lived. It seems to grow best in cracks in paths and on top of stone walls ie bone dry would appear to be to their liking. Not a favourite of mine but does flower for a good while.

                Good afternoon thank you for your advice about moving them I shall just let them grow where they seed with gay abandon,I would rather keep them than move them and lose them, ;):smile:

                Agree Valerian...Centranthus ruber.
                They like nothing better than old dry stone walls,stony ground, alkaline soils. ..well drained /hot baked.
