There is one called Helen Dillon which I would love to get hold of. It has wonderful dark purple leaves at this time of year.

Us too. Despite constant removal and weed killer, still it comes up. Should have a warning with it, like Russian Vine.

Weed ID please

Mercurialis perennis, commonly known as Dog's mercury,

Barnardia numidica

Used to be Scilla numidica. Anyone grow this?


Seems to survive here, but I was wondering if anyone has it in even colder and wetter parts of the U.K.

As far as I am concerned Ashwoods charge twice as much as most for fairly common alpines.

Help Identifying Small Shrub Please

Definitely needs potting up or planting out. The ends of the leaves look a bit chlorotic.

Not sure where we bought this without going and finding the label. Best guess is a Nursery in Cheshire called Morrey's. Proper nursery selling own grown trees, shrubs and perennials at good prices, usually.


Not begun to sucker yet. Not unhappy if it does, there is plenty of room in the bed in which is resides.

Well, ours is growing in fairly rich, well drained soil in a south facing part of the garden. The position was chosen because that's where we had space, not for any special needs.


Seems that it produces very nice fruit, if one has male and female versions. Not sure what ours is.

Does anyone else grow this?


It is in flower now and the scent is lovely.
