Hi All,
Please find attached a picture of Big Bertha 2
It probrably does not do the plant justice, but my eight year old daughter has her hand next to it for a reference size.

I love these big heads of flowers. You just can't beat them.
It looks like it has lovely broad leaves too.

Thanks Michael,
I will try and get some better pictures this year.
Interesting to note that it is of similar breeding to the akebonos I posted earlier.
It seems there is that trait lurking somewhere in this plant !!
Cheers
