Earlier this week I spotted this little gem at the back of a border. In the spring I thought it had died as there was no sign of life anywhere, but eventually the leaves appeared but no flowers. I fed it with tomato feed and it has rewarded me with 2 flowers. They are tiny, but beautifully marked, (and are actually darker than in the photo). Maybe if I look after it a bit better, and cut back some of the surrounding shrubs to give it more light, it might reward me with more flowers next year? For the moment though I'm very happy that it's alive!
