the anemones are Japanese anemones which covers many slightly different plants. Hard to give a cultivar name unless you bought it with a label on. So many are so similar.


Geranium ditto


dahlias and gladioli I know nothing about.


Is the thistle thing enormous? can't see the leaves

Please identify this plant seen in S W France

I think that's Amaranthus tricolor but it might be some other amaranthus

What is this?

It doesn't self seed here Kate, or very rarely. I'd save some and sow it next year.


Though it still looks very good, maybe keep dead heading and buy a new packet next year.

It could be a different species but looks much as Buddleia davidii to me. It's not native to the UK although it's gone wild here. Not native to Madeira either, China I think

Plant ID please

save the seed from these Allan. Wait til they're dry and tip them into an envelope. Cool and dark for the winter, sow in spring

Plant ID please

that's not a wildflower in the UK. It's Clarkia./Godetia, whichever one of those names superseded the other.

Yes, put it up a corner and ignore it. No water except what drops from the sky. Probably better in a pot if you have clay soil but very quick draining compost
