I have Brumbull ignored. The name on my ignored list has changed to sotongeoff.It's the same person. I never ignored sotongeoff, I never ignored anyone until recently

Plant sometimes commonly called Bumble Bee plant/Bee plant/shrub?

I don't think school latin helps much. Plant names are based on a mixture of languages and none of it bears any relation to what I learnt at school. Not that I learnt much. I failed my first latin exam and went downhill from there

Even those that set themselves up as experts vary in their pronunciation of the names so I think we can do as we like

I wouldn't worry Lily. If someone behaves reasonably, treat them reasonably. If they don't, ignore them.

They are perennials and not that far off hardy. At a previous garden we had a crumbly wall and they became almost shrubby in that after a few years

If they self seed outside they're a lot tougher than those grown inside then put out.

I'm hoping mine have self seeded, I forgot to collect any last autumn
