You could over winter the tuber and take cuttings next year, doesn't help now but I doubt you'll buy one now anyway.

Do Ebay ever say in which country the supplier lives ?  Might give you a clue as to what it could be ?  At least a starting try and ID.

I'd be tempted to leave it confined to the pot until you know 

See original post

 Yes they do Philippa here's a classic😀

I cut mine right down to the base, they will flower again right through the year, I leave the second flush on For self seeding next year.

Please help in identifing these plants.

I thought it was a 'meadowsweet, I have grown it from seeds. It's down by the pond.

ID needed please

Very exposed here, if you want more just wait for seeds to ripen on the plant then catch them, you have to be quick, they ripen and pop. Sow as any other seeds, every one will germinate then prick out into little pots. 

Please help in identifing these plants.

2nd one looks like Meadowsweet. Although it looks a bit to white, the leaves are the same.

I didn't know they liked shade, I've got three different ones, plus the thug type,  and they're all in full sun all day. I haven't got any shade, they'll have to put up with it.

Anomatheca laxa,  False Freesia, I've got lots of those, courtesy of someone on the seed swap thread, you can save the seeds and they will flower and make a bulb in the first year. Very pretty, all shades from white to your dark colour.. 

they don't over winter here so I keep them in pots, I dug the bulbs up and planted them again in the Spring, when I also sowed their seeds.
