      We've moved this to pride of place on the patio as it not only looks good but smells good. @pete brought it to Open Day last year :thumbsup: It's almost 6' high. :)

        IMG_5374.JPG Acteas now starting to flower....this is James Compton, the spikes are scented and lots of spikes to open out
        Salvia Uliginosa, late this year, is also starting to flower in the background on 8' tall spires

          IMG_5366.JPG Hackonechloa macra aureola still looking good and sending up flowers now. For sheer "movement" in the garden this is quite unique.....the slightest breeze makes the whole thing move like the surf on the sea. This is 2.5 metres across

                Thanks Mark. Agastache has been flowering all summer but the actea is pure class from the moment new growth commences in spring.:)
