Crocosmia Lucifer

Posted: 28/07/2017 at 18:30

Lucifer is the most red, not sure re most common. Would have thought the old orange job we used to call Montbretia was still the most common.

Seed raised, they all creep back towards orange.

The labeling as Lucifer (which it isn't) is probably down to ignorance 

Plant / Weed ID please

Interesting plant. It appears in my garden some years.

I've heard of Jimson Weed but had no idea this was it. I call it Datura stramonium,  or Thornapple when talking to non plant people

not convinced but you're in far too close with the camera. I can't see the shape of the shrub, how it grows

Does anyone know what this plant is?

Pachysandra terminalis "Green Carpet"

Galium odoratum, Sweet Woodruff is very reliable. I couldn't get Pachysandra going at all.

Right plant, right place (aruncus dioicus)

yes, you always have to ask us. 

Mine is in very dry soil and just about copes because it get very little sun. I'd move it but it's enormous and the root is like a lump of wood, in solid soil full of brick rubble. So it stays where it is.
