Dear Lauw Thanks very much for the photos. I was really interested to see those as a friend is bringing some tubers for me and I was uncertain where to position the plants. They should flower here as I am in also in the south of France (Gascony) Sorry I can't help with flowering time.... All the best Hilary Nightingale PS the links didn't work for me as the last g of jpg had dropped onto the next line in both cases. They were fine after I'd modified them. Perhaps others will find the same?
