Stargazelily it's called 'Harvington Pewter' from Harvington Hellebores. Description on label is as follows, Superb pewter coloured leaves all year round with red tinged flowers and stems in late winter.

Only bought it last week so looking forward to when it does flower.

Fab work artjak.


 


 


 a couple of shots of my garden. OH and son took all the log roll up from round the edge of the borders as it was rotten. So they need attention. Have cut back the passion flower and trimmed the two shrubs at the end. Can't wait to reshape the borders.

Fab read. Glad you seem to be winning the battle .

I must admit I've had a similar battle with an inherited allotment plot whose previous invaders just sat on their laurels and let the weeds rule. Back and hands sore, but progress has been good.

Yes we are artjak. Today after doing the housework, I went up allotment and dug over a huge patch with the help of my mum. She's retired now, but very bored! Chap up there offered me some manure ss he'd got too much so I mulched the raspberries and the recently planted fruit trees. Still a fair bit to do, but made a great start.

After that  I started on the garden. Took the Electric trimmers to a couple of shrubs/hedges to give them a better shape.  Cut down the passion flower as its not done much the last few years so replaced it with 'Nike Warsaw' clematis, hope it does okay there.

Off for a hot bath before I cook dinner, II'm knackered! !,,,,,
