I have inulas but the leaves are huge, so that's why I didn't think it was that.

Well I recognised the yellow flower jekyllandhide but could not think of the name. I think the ox-eyes are about a foot tall with thin stems.

Plant ID please

Hot Wall

The only thing to be aware of with Campsis is if it is really stormy, the branches which sucker to walls may come off and snap. It used to happen every year with stormy weather at my old house and you had to get through them to get out the front door

I do have one of those (without realising, so thanks) a bit further back in the same border. I looked at my images and before the seed heads open they look abit like sweetcorn tops. If you enlarge top middle the seeds look like very long needles.

I've had this in my front garden for a while but don't know which type it is. It might be a stip but its not Gigantea or Tenuissima.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
