@Darcy, I don't mind white per se, but the old fashioned one is a little bit invasive, and it swamped out a couple of nicer ones that were growing next to it, so I'm actively reducing how much of it I have. Problem is, you can't tell which ones they are until they flower.

I've got some lovely colours in the garden already, including orange, white with purple edges and dots, sky blue, burgundy, apricot, and one of the "almost blacks". Some are from when Dad got interested in named varieties back in the '70s, and then my sister started up an extensive collection herself. I love them too, but don't have the budget to buy up new releases, so I happily take whatever surplus divisions I'm offered. Means my sister hopefully has a backup source if she loses any of hers.
