Tried to start new thread about Phygelius. Didn't work. It took ages to give me a box to write in here. That's why I haven't posted recently, either I can't get to the site at all or no box to write in or when I type it leaves out letters all over the place.
Has anyone grown red phygelius? I don't know which variety mine is, but it's gone mad and taken over half the bed smothering other plants. Just dug up lots but it's roots have gone sideways and through other plant's roots, including through my lovely eremurus. The stems tend to snap off and the roots were quite hard to dig up. I should have tried to control it earlier, but it did most of the growth when it started raining in September, was still flowering earlier this month. Anyone else have this problem? Are all varities like that? It's pretty and flowers for a long time, but I would like a better behaved one.
