Hi all, I was given this plant ad have no idea what it is. Does anyone else know? The leaves look a bit like Strawberry and the flowers are about 3-4cm in diameter. It is just finishing flowering but only flowers for a couple of weeks. It doesn't fruit but has tall leggy stems which need supporting. Here's a pic. Thanks loads, Mel
Could it be potentilla? I can't make out the leaves too well on the pic so wouldn't like to say for sure...
The leaves would help. so many flowers look much the same in isolation
Aha! Thanks, Victoria Sponge! Having done a bit of googling, it looks to be a Potentilla 'William Rollison'. Super.
Ooh- I've just bought that! Really should have recognised it then
Ha ha ha!
Could it be geum Mrs Bradshaw?
Don't think it's a geum mrs bradshaw. Mine has been flowering for a couple of months and still got more coming.
Don't think so Gardenmaiden, the leaves don't look quite right.
Did wonder myself whether it was a Geum though.
The potentilla pics really fit.
geum ‘Blazing Sunset’?
it looks just like my geum but I dont know the name.
Like I say, the leaves don't match the geum.
Unless the leaves we see are a different plant completely?
It is the potentilla I have it in the garden.
Hmm, just googled-
geum, mrs b, double petals, pointy edged leaves
potentilla, five seperate petals, rounded leaves.
its exactly like the googled geum
