Checked out the agapanthus nurseries suggested and seems the best value and has a fantastic range.

Just catching up and two more beautiful stars bizzie and yviestevie 

Bizzie I actually think I have an anemone Which has one flower on it! First one in two or three years! I'll move it when I get to that border

Lovely Yvie - rudbeckias never fail to make me smile

Think my current stars are hydrandgeas (annabelle and vanilla fraise) and a couple of lone roses (gertrude and queen elizabeth)

 Geranium Rozanne has been flowering all summer.


Dahlia "Pooh"

My photos are always back to front nowadays. Pooh was first with it's name over it then Rozanne with it's name over it. Have a third, Begonia "Dragon's Wing".

Lovely stars Busy, I'm hoping to find one when it stops raining

Love Rozanne too Lizzie - there's a reason it won plant of the century (or whatever that silly Chelsea award was last year - how can you choose one plant for 100 years )

Wendy, the yellow is helianthus lemon queen - not really got into its stride yet this year. It gets to 8 foot and needs no staking so is perfect for the back of my borders. Wish i could find other plants that do the same. Tried a thalictrum elin this year, but it was pretty floppy, and have high hopes for a eupatorium, but the verdict is still out on that one.

Lovely flowers everyone, I've enjoyed looking back on this thread. Mark, that tri-spotty-thingummy is gorgeous!
My huge cosmos is still going crazy despite the rain.
A rescue poppy from late spring has a flower on it now so at least I know the label is right.
8foot sunflowers just coming out - but pointing the wrong blinkin way!
