@hollie-hock.. no. i am sure your rudbeckias are annuals.. may last bit longe rin warmer climate over winter...but mine dont.. if the have hairy slightly prickly feel stems they are annuals.. the perennial ones are smooth stemmed and more basal in leaves and grow taller.. and single yellow colours normally.. and die down over winter.i may be wrong hopefully someone will come along hwo knows bit more..
my buddlehia is on the shaded side and gets early morning sun and late evening sun.. but they are very hardy and i always think white looks better in the shade.. seems to make it shine out.. but i think they will grow anywhere.. thou this one has been harder to get cuttings to take from than the purple ones... someone told me walking past other day that white is un common.. must say the scent is to much sweeter than the purples one.. it just wafts across the gardem.. while i am dead heading.
@lillylouise.. your garden always leavs me in awe.. it is just gorgeous..
everyones piccies are great .. i love looking at other gardens.. i always peeping over hedges and walls when out walking... you can learn alot about what grows and what doesnt in you soil.
