I tried to get there before the snails....

Oh good grief - I thought I'd managed to take a photo of some flowers that the snails hadn't got hold of yet, but looking at the photo close-up I see the blighters were there before me >:(

Nice one Rena.

Are all the flowers Multi-Petals? More than 6 tepals/ sepals?
Any history on this plant?

Thanks for sharing.

Regards, Clemens

Clemens -

This is  also one of my old plants - it had the odd MP before but this year all the flower heads have some - but only about 30 - 40% of each head.
