Crambe Cordifolia

Posted: 03/06/2015 at 13:56

It's a herbaceous perennial not a shrub. It dies back to nothing at the end of the season. It's tall and impressive in flower, takes up a lot of space at that time and dies back to brown stems and rather manky(spelling?) leaves. It's in the cabbage family and smells like it when the dying leaves get wet.

It's one of the plants on my get rid  of list

Is it just me?!

I'm being big and brave this year and removing anything that doesn't look good. This is the theory anyway 

But when I get to all those interesting things I've grown from seed, and those that are fairly unusual and you don't see very often and those that some insect likes to eat......

We'll see how I get on

Damage to fir's

They won't green up where they're brown, most conifers don't unfortunately. I think I'd remove the yellow one, cut out the dead bits on the green and see what it looks like when you've done that. The browning could have been caused by many things, overgrowing with weeds  or other plants is a common one. The low area on the green one might be that or something peeing up it
