Try Silene vulgaris, Bladder Campion, if it's taller

Disturbing a newly planted Peony

I think it's too deep, buds should point up, just below the surface.

the little mauve one is an erodium, I think it's the one called 'Bishop's Form'


the orange one looks like an aloe but not plants I can ID with accuracy


the white one is a silene, given where you are, Silene maritima maybe. 


I know tamarisk but I've never grown it

ID please

That's OK then. Inula helenium


I get self seeded ones, I don't find they spread by roots like some other inulas

ID please

Are they only just flowering?


The leaves look like Inula but the late flowering suggests Helianthus. 


All my inulas have been over for weeks, it's the perennial helianthus now.


What do you think Dove?

Books, catalogues, magazines or digital?

books and celebrity free internet sites,  


I hate the throwaway nature of papers and magazines and their lack of any real content. 

I think it's some sort of geranium

I'm not sure it is the same PJ, it looks as though your leaves have a more feathery edge than mine.


But I'm not an erodium expert, there might be variations within the species.

Two photos of Erodium manescavii for PJ and an over-all view of the original geranium in question.


I've been researching Geranium robustum and, in the right place, it can be shrub-like to 3'. Mine is about 2' 6'' at its tallest. I am sure this is a second generation seeding of robustum x incanum but leaning much more towards robustum now.





the bit to middle right is another bit of it

yes PJ, very attractive grey/blue, almost silvery. Better in the poor dry place it's growing in now, it was greener and duller where it was before. Ashamed to say I can't remember re evergreen


I have The Erodium you mentioned in flower, I spotted it on the way to the compost heap. When it stops p...ing down I'll see if I can get a shot.
