potbound and starving peanuts? Some of mine probably are, from my seed not plugs, a bit behind those in the pic
PS, I failed to answer the question. I think they're too small to flower this year but will be great next year as long as you leave them in the ground
Agree with Bob, leave them, though if they've only just been put there you could group them. they make more of an impact in a group than in a row separated by other plants.
It does look like a verbascum
that looks like Tragopogon porrifolius , salsify
those red things in pots are pelagoniums GD.
Nice maderense That isn't hardy enough for long term survival here.
Agree hebe, leaves look a bit broad for salicifloia
Have you more photos. With leaves? That's too close-up for me, I don't see plants like that
I think I have both to excess
alkanet has the tap root, Brunnera a mass of wiry roots.
we await a pic
