I have one plant which has flowered again after producing seed. It still has some new growth on it. Could this be a sport that turns out to be perennial? How exciting! I'm keeping a close eye on it.
Has anyone come across a yellow flowered form of Honesty which may have been dropped by birds? The seed pods are the same as the common variety.
Reply to Olwen: No I haven't heard of this, but would love to see a picture if you have a yellow form. You can email it to me at adam.pasco@bbc.com. Looking forward to hearing more.
I have some honesty plants in my garden and they are flowering in profusion right now. The plants have self sown and I think must have originally appeared via birds. They produce beautiful glimmering seed discs (pods) every year without fail and they suit my cottage style garden to a T, thank you birds!
I love Honesty, despite its scentlessness, that is why it's my Flower of the Month http://tinyurl.com/3sf579g

These seed pods are lovely, and children at my local primary school have used them to make their Christmas decorations.
