I have grown this plant from seed, no idea what it is called the flower forms from the leaves like borgonvillia, I think thats how you spell it. My wife tells me its a wild plant, if it is I am going to fill my garden with them. Can anyone tell me its name. Try to upload a photo, but it did not work. Why are these uploading apps so complicated.
Many Thanks Keith Trotman (Paghan nr Bognor Regis)
Here's the picture I did not know that I had to register before I could upload a pic, what a magnificant plant
I think a photo or a bit more of a description will help. Is it an annual?
Thankyou for your reply, I have just uploaded a photo.
It looks a bit like one of the Eucalyptus family
Thank you for your feedback, what you say does make sense with me, the leaves are the right colour. The original plant was in someone's garden in West Sussex on top of a hill so I think that it could well be hardy. Many thanks again.
Hi again Keith I've sent you a PM, did you get it?
This is Cerinthe major purpurescens
once again nutcutlet is correct
But I'm still puzzling about that climber on the mystery plant thread Dave
I cant even find the thread lol

That's probably because I was totally inaccurate in what I called it. It's this one
Many thanks one and all for your instant response to my quiery, I look forward to more conversation on this site. In fact here is a quick one. I have an Australian Tree Fern, grows here in Bognor Regis no problem. During the last two winter's the leaves gradually went black with the frost and as recommended in the early Spring I cut them off to allow new growth. This year has been mild and the leaves are as green as they were last Summer, should still cut them off in Spring or can I leave them so as to create a double bank of leaves, many thanks.
Hi again Keith
Sorry, don't know about tree ferns.
But I think you should start a new thread with this query and put tree fern into the thread title. That way people who know about tree ferns will see it and reply.

Nut, you are so helpfull, create a new post for anyone who has knowledge on that will see it - it may be lost on this thread).
And if your lucky Kieth, Nut may even bring you a cuppa and some cake..
Thanks you for that info I will do that, but not today the sun is shinning here in Paghan so its out to the garden before it snows again.
It must be one of my more intelligent days Dave. Don't hold your breath waiting for the next one.
Haven't make a cake this W/E, sorry
Delighted Dave its nearly that time now, well perhaps another hour. I have a lovely photo of my garden this winter in the snow, which didn't last 5 mins.
I hope you make me one for my birthday this Weds nut...
That is one impressive palm you have there Keith..
I'll see what I can do about the cake Dave.
Cerinthes looked very poor here last year, probably the excessive wet so I'll give them another chance. You're right Verdun, they'll be here whatever I do.
