Plant ID, buddleia? One other.

Posted: 21/05/2014 at 13:40

Agree with Nut.  

1. Not a buddleia  - those are willow herbs - don't leave them unless you want them everywhere - they'll flower and seed this year. 

2. a Sisyrinchium.

I'm wondering whether you had a lot of salt spray in the winds - certainly a problem around the East Anglian coast.

Tall plants for a north facing wall?

I think white foxgloves would love it there.  

We grow foxgloves, honeysuckle and some clematis and roses against a north facing fencne.

"Half the stems have snapped"  but half haven't - pot them up in fresh compost - they'll soon grow some more - honestly, in a week's time you'll hardly know it's happened 

Plant ID, please

I've looked at Fool's parsley online and in my Keble Martin - doesn't look quite right - I've taken a close up of a leaf - what do you think?

 Although the main stem is cylindrical, the leaf stems have the groove on the upper surface like Cow parsley. 

Sorry, it's a bit dark - I didn't use flash in case the white paper flared.  If you want one with flash let me know.

Thanks Salino   

Nut, I don't think we did - I've just been and picked a leaf and had a good sniff - nothing other than a very faint cow-parsley type smell.

Are they not rescuable?  If you plant them up again quickly they'll probably do as well as new ones.
