Does anyone have any idea what this beautiful plant is..



look after a nursing home garden with raised beds and have never been able to idea this grows quite tall and has beautiful yellow flowers on it.......this year i have been able to divide it and now have two more plants....


Oh, that is gorgeous!  Bumping the thread, as I'd like to know what it is too!


Looks like a verbascum to me. ???? Very pretty !!!


Supernoodle. Explain 'bumping the thread' please.

Its sisyrinchium.



sisyrinchium striatum methinks



there's a nice variegated for called  " aunt May"



I agree with hostafan

 Sisyrinchium striatum


Hey Runnybeak, by replying I "bump" the question to the top of the forum latest posts list - makes it more likely for someone to spot.


Thanks foe the id.  Just looked it up and not really suitable for my soil

Got a large pot I was wondering what to do with though 


Thanks Supernoodle. . Just popping out to water. Slabs in garden are still warm as we have had a scorcher this afternoon. Hope it continues. 

Ok, thanks for the feed back....will check out the suggestions....
