Cephalaria gigantea woody at base?

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 21:16

My cepahalaria is very leafy at the base and I didn't cut it back in the autumn.

Still not cut back.

Getting very tall but not flowering is interesting. 

I wouldn't chop until you know what you've got

I think we need a photo CraighB.

Lots of perennials will make new growth up the stem if you don't cut them back, they make growth from the base if you do cut them. 

 

ID please

I don't know the species forms well enough to ID, the seedling is much broader in leaf than the variegated one in the photo. The green versions always look (and are) more robust. Still looks too much like C. pendula to me

I like Carex pendula, in my 2 acre wildlife haven it's lovely. In a normal garden it isn't

ID please

Variegated carex probably seed to green. They're not likely to seed true. Which ones have you got?

What is taking over my garden

rosebay WH is not the only one with more resistant roots. Dig one up and see what's there. Juts a root, no problem.

Long runners spreading out from the root, make sure you get it all out

ID please

Looks like Carex pendula to me, but could be some other carex. Carex have a triangular profile with a ridge down the back. Have a feel tomorrow

Hosta's right. It's a recognised term and you learn what it means
