CORNUS SANGUINES WINTER BEAUTY

Posted: 23/05/2016 at 18:19

Maybe it will do better for you Kate. I've seen them in winter gardens looking great. They have their moments. 


This is just my opinion, how I've found it. You might get something much more positive from someone else.


A lot get sold so some people must be doing better than me

That's nice


Looks more like an herbaceous paeony to me.

I don't prune this one hard, it's not as strong growing as most of those cultivars. Yes it turns black at the tips, yes it's a dull plant.


I threaten it with the shredder but it's still there because every so often it looks stunning. Not often, but just enough to avoid wipe out. 


I just cut off the black bits

Tree peony in shade?

For a while they can be moved but I'd need heavy machinery to move mine now.

they're not all the same size. My yellow one was about 10 foot across till I removed a few of the outer branches so we could use the path. The red one more like 6 foot. Both considerably taller than me. Others are mere babies yet

2 of my 3 are in shade and do fine. I think the flowers last longer in the shade

Plant ID

The majority of the plants in there look like Linaria pururea to me.


No echium vulgare 

Plant id please

Azaea Viscosum

Check out the plant's native habitat, not those who write on web and in books. Mis-information gets copied on.


and agree with pp.


No idea re the specific plant, alkaline soil here

what is this tree?

Posted: 23/05/2016 at 09:06

limes (Tilia not citrus fruit)


They don't grow that shape naturally and you can choose other trees to treat the same way
