Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

Hesperis live two to three years. They produce lots of seed which you can scatter around if you can recognise seedlings and are not a hoe fiend. Perfectly hardy.


I usually sow a few in a tray, prick out into small pots then put in gaps in September. I have never tried eating either, although I believe you can eat wallflower flowers.

That ofetn happens as they start flowering.  It will have both sorts within two weeks or so.

mine didnt climb for two years. This year it has gone bonkers.  I thought it was mislabelled and was about to dig it out if it didn't do anything this year.

The reason I thought it honeysuckle, was it looks like one I bought cheap, planted it ,lost the label, and for two years it has looked like that. This year it seems to have got into its stride, lots of twining shoots for the first time, and today it has pairs of scented white flowers, so I think mine is Lonicera japonica. It has much less showy flowers than  the Graham Thomas I have on the pergola.

I suspect that always happened with my mum and dad too.


I suspect it will be so close, that even if there is a 1per cent majority, an excuse will be found .. Not enough people voted, not 50% of population eligible to vote  or something else

I don't think it's either. Looks like one of the shrubby honeysuckles.

Can someone please ID this for me?

A weed of the chenopodium family. It seeds everywhere. Pull it out now.

There was a gorgeous one growing in the sand at the edge of the beach in North Sulawesi. We passed it every morning going to the dive boat. The spent flowers would be on the ground. The most exotic thing I've seen. Constant 30centigrade all year round.
