currently the star in my garden is  cytisus x spachianus (Easter broom). I don't know why it is called Easter broom, because it has flowers all year round, but now it is the most full. 

 

Plant ID please

Hi all 

please see pictures for plants ID, I bought geums last year and the year before they are planted in two areas and at my amazement I thought wow look at there growth but hang on they are mostly Mrs Bradshaw geums and one other yellow geum, so decided I would have a look through threads and then it came to me that it could be creeping buttercup. Please help.  

the first three pictures are from a different part of my garden, to me the first picture looks like it is a flowering stem of a geum (fingers crossed).

 

thanks all

Hi all.

please could you help me identify this plant, (the one that has thin leaves, it looks like it grows from a single basal node thing) it is growing amongst my geums/creeping buttercup (see other thread).

thank you

Don't use fbb if you have foxes in the area, it makes no difference how much you dig it in, foxes will attempt to dig the fbb out and in doing so ruin your garden. Use compost in spring to mulch and a slow release in pots or baskets. Works for me

Dicentra spectabilis - is yours up yet?

Thanks 4thpanda. 

I agree papi Jo, my alba var. is 2 years old in its spot and never grows much more than 75cm.  If I'm perfectly honest the alba and red variety are nice but the original is much more spectacular. 

They take me back to my childhood, we always called them lady in a bath. ????
