Odd flowers on Aquilegia Black Barlow

Posted: 08/06/2015 at 09:40

There's nothing standard about aquilegias unless you have a species that has been grown miles away from any other species. (and I mean species, not a hybrid or cultivar which most of them are). The are a promiscuous lot and you get what you get which will be different again in the next generation

Yes, that's the one. 

Do you know the history of your piece of ground? Mine was used as a dump for years and there are some areas where things just won't grow. They might start, but then go yellow and die.

And are they all woody things that have died or have herbaceous plants died as well?

Plant ID please anyone

could be,  Gardenmaiden. I had in mind the similar(ish) Telekia as a possibility

I think that's Euphorbia robbiae which may swamp smaller plants but doesn't poison them.

The point against honesty is that being biennial it's either very tiny right now or the flowers are over and the seed pods are forming. That plant looks as though it's coming up to flower. Could you do another couple of photos from different angles?

I think Chrissie is right, laurel. Prunus laurocerasus.

I'd have a stab at the first one if I knew what Japanese azalea leaves looked like

That's an interesting one Gerald. I don't recognise that. Where are you and what sort of soil have you got?
