Identification needed No. 2

Rain overnight, with even a little rumble of thunder to make vindicate the weather forecasters. Sunny but windy this morning.

In the gardens of Piemonte a beautiful plant is flowering.


And I want one.
For 20 Carmine points, can you tell me what it is called and what its habits are? And how can I propagate it?

Hi - thank-you! I was starting to despair. There's plenty of sun in my garden, in fact too much, so I guess if we acquire one it might be fairly happy...?
