Yes, they start out like that and the top stays more or less like that, but as the stem grows taller the lower leaves curve downwards.

As I explained in response to your previous post 


"Duncan - this is a commercial website - part of Immediate Media which sells advertising space online and in its magazines.


Adverts are expected to be paid for.

Your furniture looks great and I applaud your recycling ethos - but freeloading on commercial websites isn't going to endear you to the owners

Animal faeces in veg plot

Someone told me that female cats bury their droppings as they don't want to draw attention to themselves and any kittens they may have, whereas male cats leave their droppings in the open to mark their territory and deter other tom cats.  How true that is I have no idea ..........

Do you mean some of the leaves curving downwards while some curve upwards? 


They do that ...... it's quite normal

Identification please

The first looks like Prunus 'Kojo-no-mai'


The second is a hellebore, possibly a Hellebore orientalis ... but not sure which one.  There are hundreds.
