      What beautiful colours Michael. I have never seen such. Did you do them from seed?
      All your flowers are lovely, stunning Rose.

          Good afternoon @wiseowl :smile:

          I bought it @Victoria, I can sometimes overwinter them as cuttings. Thanks for the compliment :smile:
          Good luck with your Kiss of Death ... (sounds terrible lol)
