    Dear Marn - Thank you so much for your reply - I was just about getting desperate and this certainly looks like my plant. I have been everywhere, including Kew Gardens and the Royal Horticultural Society - which, you will appreciate, for us Brits is like the bibles of plants. I am so grateful to you and am just about to go on the web to find out all about my special plant. Thanks again - Maggie.
