I can't remember the name of this one, and my gardening buddy, Mr Brown - a golden retriever - has done his usual trick and removed the label!
Its normally earlier than this, just ahead of the Montana Rubra it shares an arch with, so we get blue bells followed by pink stars.
Can anyone help?

Second photo.

I'm pleased to report that the Mrs Robert Bryden is sprouting firmly now. Apparently it will reach 10 feet in the year, even though its always a late starter in years when it isn't evergreen. The other two newbies are also looking very strong and healthy so hopefully there will be some bloom pictures in the autumn.

Another picture, the pink buds are the Montana, and that's apple blossom in the background.

wondering if your first photo is of Pamela Jackman?

All 3 pics are the same plant Carolyn. Yes Pamela Jackman is very similar but I think rather more blue and less purple? Also the centre on PJ is supposed to be a greenish colour isn't it ? These have a paler slightly pinker version of the outer colour. Not sure if it will show up but from a distance the centre of the bell is a similar colour to the Montana buds!
