Yes, I love the colour it takes on at this time of year.

I was a stranger to this until recently but now have two plants. Look forward to having a long loving relationship with it!

Looks really lovely. Some great colours around at the minute and what a fabulous day again today!

I love the way leaves fall on to their huge leaves. The flowers are gorgeous in the spring.

Gorgeous colour, looking super on a big leaved plant.  Enjoying the lovely weather here too.

Yes indeed, your plant looks stunning. Darmera thrives in damp places and is so useful in that situation. But when it is so very very happy, it goes on the march and pushes everything else out of its way.  I finally got a very large area (all from a little 6" pot) wheel-barrowed off to a Neighbour who was willing to re-home it In his very wet Patch in his bottom garden. 

It should behave much better in a dry spot. 

Glad to say we had a lovely brisk day here and the sea looked marvellous.

Yes this is a very dry spot, I will divide it and move it to a damper area also, this was really a temporary position but it has done well on a hill too!
