What is this yellow flowering bush.

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 12:53

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

phlox paniculata

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.

Suggestions welcom

Sempervivums? Sedums? Thyme?. Dwarf Campanula? Aubrieta?  Silver Saxifrages?

To a certain extent it depends on how much sun it gets and whether it is walked/driven on.

What is this plant?

Looks dark enough to be Astrantia Roma

No, digging them up and storing like that would do them no good at all. They would dry out and probably die. If you need to move them then put in big pots with as much soil as possible, if you cannot replant immediately. Moving them will delay flowering too.
