They are quite happy to be moved. I spread mine round the garden any time from late summer onwards. Water them in well to settle the soil and they'll be fine

id please.

If you visit this site and go to their Facebook page and post your pics someone will ID it for you. I got an answer in about 10mins last time I used it..

Wait til tomorrow though, there seems to be a photos problem right now,

I'm not a Facebook person but it has its uses

I think it lacks the brightness of the welsh poppy. A more subtle light yellow

Eryngium planum, yes the first is probably that, it looks right.. It's a perennial and will probably flower next year as long as it's in a good sunny well drained spot. It's not the biennial one we've been nattering on about, hi-jacking your thread

2 looks like E. bourgatii to me, that might flower next year or need another year.

Gigantea don't really have spiky leaves do they?

Yes Lyn, all my E gigantea have flowered (eventually) turned brown, dropped millions of seeds and died. Which is what I expected.

I've got 4 or 5 other species and there have been more in the past, all perennial. There are some spiky leaves out there
