    Not sure statice fits with your rock n roll image. I reckon you need a borage and a leonotus for the true Higgeldy experience

      Ha ha!! As always you are quite right Anna…at least in as much as borage and Leon rock our boat…but we are in touch with our feminine side too…maybe not as far as statice…but we hold hands with Ammi and Gyp. ;) x

    I suspected readers would prefer ammi majus to visnaga…I think I agree…
