Sorry no photo available - no camera with me when I saw this plant.
Has upright/vertical quite narrow grass-type leaf growth, and what appear at first sight to be seed-heads but which develop into bell-shaped flowers, hanging down at intervals from the stem. Bright pink flowers, similar in size and shape to those of a foxglove.
Overall height of leaf growth approx. 3ft - thin and very flexible flowering stems an additional 2ft in height. The flowers hang individually from small stems approx. 3 inches long. Several flowers on each of the long (flowering) stems. .
Looks amazing when blowing about in the breeze! Never seen anything like it - not even in a book - the garden where I saw this plant is very overgrown, but because of the existing plants it was obviously created by a keen gardener. Within the garden itself is very long-established Chilean Pine tree - the largest I've ever seen.
Anybody got any ideas about this mystery plant?
