Strange, there are two on my ignore llist, neither of which are the ones mentioned above and certainly never ignored anyone on here that I can remember.

What is this yellow flowering bush.

It is a thug where suited. In the end I dug it out as it just went wild in the Prairie, killing everything else on its way to the end of the world.

Very unusual for Hayloft, their service is reckoned to be one of the best.

The Phlox I got were from an offer in Saga Magazine. They came as dried roots, but when soaked overnight and potted up, they grew away. For the price I paid I could not complain about what I got.

Now I would say it was one of the Helianthus tribe, if it is 6 feet tall.

Keep your eyes open. last year Hayloft Plants did an offer of 10 different Phlox for a very reasonable price. They may well repeat it.

We have about 15 different ones, but they have been decimated by molluscs this year, to the extent that some of them have completely gone.

They are also martyrs to mildew in  dry soil or very dry weather.

Help needed please - is this a weed?

They will grow and flower anywhere. Lot of ours are thriving and flowering round the base of trees like that, in deep dark shade too. Leave them there and see what happens.

It was the only plant I could find with the description given. Dug it out ages ago as it is such a thug.

Check out Galega officinalis. That has coconut scented blue pea like flowers (so they tell me, never found any scent on ours).

I would go with Aquilegia,  having enlarged the picture. Weeds if they are where you do not want them to grow.

The only time I have grown them from seed I sowed wild collected ones, so of uncertain age, in Spring. I don't think, being South African, that they would need cold. Having said that ,I tend to sow all seeds as soon as they are ripe enough.
