Can anyone tell me if the different shaped aquilegia flowers around my garden have different names? The shape of flowers is so diverse, and I wondered if one of them is the native wild variety.

thank you Fairygirl and Forester2 for the compliments. I always have my camera handy to catch a good shot if I can. Have a look at my magnolia flower by my name.

Fairygirl I'd have loved to be in Loch Etive to see that. I love that place. We used to go there every 2 years before my husband had a stroke. That ride down to the end of the road truly remarkable. Such a peaceful place.

is this clematis cirrhosa?

That's It!! Great ! Thank you both very much. I just knew someone on here would be able to identify it correctly. I'm delighted that it's now got a name.

There's some great pics on this thread, so just wanted to add one taken last week.

 I inherited this clematis and I think it may be a cirrhosa type. I would love to know what name this one is as I cannot find pictures of one like it anywhere on the web. It has pale greenish petals with a slight blush of pink but no spots. Can anyone help please?

Mmm. Yes I think my neighbour would take it as a personal criticism, so I'll just keep treating and digging I think!

I had 20 years in an Xtra large bank as a trainer and cashier, but decided to get trained as a florist just before I took early retirement. I'd love to show that lot on the allotment prog how to arrange their flowers!

I've started getting a few shoots of this through from my neighbours garden, growing under their fence. I dig down as far as possible but the roots always seem to come from her side. Anything I can doo? I've bought some of that gel stuff to dab on the new growth. Will it work on that sort of elder?
