Yes thats the one. I bought mine about 5 years ago and every year the frost gets it - only  to return the following year- even bigger. I have not seen it since in any garden centre around my way. Its very pretty although also an irratant im told.

Has anyone heard of a plant called Oriental Limelight before?

It looks like the Marijuana plant in a funny sort of way.

My Buddleias are re - flowering again due to cutting back about 3 weeks ago.

Kate1123 i like your idea about the sunflower heads.

 

Thanks everyone for your words of advice - Christopher Kate and Sotongeoff. I will take on board what each and everyone of you say.

Watching a few weeks back Monty Donn mentioned about cutting back Buddelia and Cosmos to give more energy to plants so they would flower again and keep the bees happy.

Then watching Carol from the same programme (sorry forgot her surname) she mentioned leaving plants to die off naturally so the seeds would fall and be food for the birds in the wintering months.

 

Im confused. I want to provide a store cupboard for the insect world but am left somewhat bewildered at  what to chop and what to leave alone.

Ive looked in my garden centre and cant find Hellebores at all.  Are they out yet? I wanted one for the bees as a larder in those coming out of hibernation months.

 

Thank you.
