Cracking plant Mike.
Do you have any idea how old it is likely to be?

I bought it at the Bandstead MSG event a couple of years ago as far as I can recall. Maybe 5 years old. It seems to grow a lot faster than the others I have.

Stunning! I'm delighted if I get any flowers at all on Cheiridopsis plants.

Perhaps being a shade lover helps it coping with the UK climes...
