Are they only just flowering?


The leaves look like Inula but the late flowering suggests Helianthus. 


All my inulas have been over for weeks, it's the perennial helianthus now.


What do you think Dove?

Books, catalogues, magazines or digital?

books and celebrity free internet sites,  


I hate the throwaway nature of papers and magazines and their lack of any real content. 

I think it's some sort of geranium

I'm not sure it is the same PJ, it looks as though your leaves have a more feathery edge than mine.


But I'm not an erodium expert, there might be variations within the species.

Two photos of Erodium manescavii for PJ and an over-all view of the original geranium in question.


I've been researching Geranium robustum and, in the right place, it can be shrub-like to 3'. Mine is about 2' 6'' at its tallest. I am sure this is a second generation seeding of robustum x incanum but leaning much more towards robustum now.





the bit to middle right is another bit of it

yes PJ, very attractive grey/blue, almost silvery. Better in the poor dry place it's growing in now, it was greener and duller where it was before. Ashamed to say I can't remember re evergreen


I have The Erodium you mentioned in flower, I spotted it on the way to the compost heap. When it stops p...ing down I'll see if I can get a shot.

It had a pink geranium flower, it's had more flowers in previous years. I shall keep it for the foliage even if there are few flowers, it's doing well on a very poor area of soil.


I'm confident it's 2 generations on from seed ex G. 'Silver Shadow'

I'll see if I've got one Papi Jo, otherwise I'll see if it's flowering tomorrow. I've seen flowers on one of them fairly recently. I can do leaves for comparison if nothing else.


If I have a photo it's not labeled and therefore unfindable. I really must do something about all those plant photos with no names They're no good for anything.


I found Erodium pelagonifolium if you'd like one of those

flower, Papi jo, just the one, I was too slow


I grow Erodium manescavii, a very different plant, this one is woody.


I found its origins in my file eventually, see above.
