That's what I would expect from a GC alpine.
Most of them. possibly all, are biennials so you haven't got a huge plant there that will take over in time
I'm not short of birds generally here, but thrushes are very low
do you think it might be this?
I would need to see the flowers for that. There are alpine verbascums.
Where did you get it? Alpine is 'garden centre speak' for small plant. But they're really plants from the high mountains are some are not small.
Google alpine verbascums
I remember, Virginian stock, Malcolmia maritima
No, not wayfaring tree, I know those well.
and this one is very familiar and I'm sure it will come to me
There was a little annual stock we grew as children, looked a bit like that. Not the night-scented stock.
Is it a seeded annual or is it a perennial from last year?
The tall one looks like a cytisus (broom)
The second one is Leycesteria formosa
They will seed Bob. I guarantee it
The phlomis are fidget's Dove. Though there are plenty in the garden here if she runs out
Chicky you cab have pulsatilla and Molly. I'll bring it along but if fidget's Molly's are bigger you can change your mind
