What is this plant ?

Posted: 30/07/2016 at 17:09

not a delphinium. 

It looks more like a tree paeony tbh. Have you any more photos? some showing the leaves from the top. 

If it is, leave it alone and it will flower next year or the one after, don't cut it back like a perennial. 

Nicer than a delphinium

Thank you,

wild primroses and cowslips grow in grass here and get mowed after May or June. They come back and flower every year.

I prefer white Lantana.

I would like to apply for membership please though I'm not sure if I'm eligible because

1. I am reliably informed that what we have here is not a forgotten heap of rusty metal and half bricks but a source of useful material for building and sculpture.

2. It is a wildlife habitat.

3. It's OH's heap

Should  I stay or should I go?  (Cue chorus)

Being in the public eye would lead to constant criticism. I don't think you'd like that. You only have to read through a few of the GW/Monty Don/ANotherTVprogramme threads to see how it would be.There are people waiting to pounce on any error or defect in appearance. 

Geoff Hamilton is revered now but only because he's dead. He was well criticised in his time. 

Will this tanacetum flower?

I think I'd move a fuchsia in spring as it wakes up for the season.

I hope there are still flowers to come wakeshine. 

I don't worry about rules. If I'm buying it's in ones, too expensive otherwise, then I divide or grow from seed to increase numbers. the thing about perennials is you can move them around if you don't like your first choice of position.

the hesperis is quite tall, lovely scent. Back of border is fine, 

Tanacetum is perennial but I don't grow it and don't know flowering time
