Plant identity - any ideas welcome.

Hi again !!

Thanks ever so much for the very helpful replies. I've followed up the suggestions and now think it's almost certainly Centaurea dealbata 'Steenbergii'. There's even an entry on the GW plant database !! 

I've found the plant to be very well behaved unlike certain other cornflowers which spread everywhere!! This year it is less "leggy" than in previous years and despite the regular rain of recent weeks it has not flopped !!!

I have a few more plants to identify but as they have not flowered yet I cannot take proper photos.

Thanks again and happy gardening

Hi there !

The photos below taken 06 June 2012 show a herbaceous plant which looks lovely each year - we have lived in our present home for 3 years now. I have no idea what the plant is and nor do any of our neighbours. It does not seem to be growing in any local gardens and I have not seen it for sale anywhere. There's no label next to the plant and so I hope that someone "out there" might be able to help.

Eucalyptus bush

Hi sunshine in the garden - just came across your query and as I have eucalyptus bush which I prune each year thought you would be interested in this link which explains what to do and when to do it depending on the look you want.

I have not contributed to the forum previously so hope that the link works !!
