Plant ID

Probably wouldn't thrive here either Ladybird. I can't remember where I saw it, I've not been to Dixter so it wasn't there. Beth Chatto's garden maybe, she has a lot of interesting plants.


Nice here if a little breezy, I won't work under the ash with the dead bits today, I might get a stick on the head

Christopher LLoyd had one at Great Dixter, maybe still there. It features in one of his books but only in flower if I remember correctly. He described it as not casting much shade.


We have several forum member hot on ID that haven't commented so maybe not noticed.

depends where you live, what your soil is like and what sort of winter we get I should think.


I had some once, they weren't there the next year. They're not really right for this garden so I didn't replace them

It was supposed to be a geranium...

the leaves that aren't all screwed up look like peppers. 


It won't be evening primrose, that only makes a rosette in the first year. and laurel would never get that big from March.

Overzealous clearing - have I damaged my Cornus Controversa (variagated).

cover the roots, give it a good drink and speak kindly to it.


4 weeks is a long time to have roots exposed

Thanks Bob, I can never remember which is which apart from the chasers, they stick in my mind somehow.


I tried for an even better shot, 4 of them lined up on 4 poppies, but my photography is luck rather than skill

my ornamentals have black berries, they're not particularly tasty but I'm still alive.


I think the strings that red currant hang in are pretty distinctive

it's very yellow when it's in flower GD. So yellow that everyone want to photograph it then. But have a look at this selection and see what you think.
