comb over mostly. If conditions are perfect, great. But conditions are rarely perfect.

the trouble is common names.
Your plant is Centranthus ruber, aka valerian.
There is also Valeriana officianalis, aka valerian
and a passion flower, I thinl that one is Passiflora caerulea
and a hebe.
and a penstemon
I like the discussion that plant ID threads bring. If you used an app, you'd get an answer (right or wrong) but how would you know if it was really right or just something similar?
I wonder what the neighbour's agenda is
best time to plant?
Bulbs are plants, they like to be in the ground
I went and looked at mine, just Sorbus aria, not a cultivar. One is in the same state as yours, I mowed more leaves than grass later on. The other 2 are fine.
It's not a disease or an infestation and I wouldn't consider using something that kills indiscriminately in my garden. Everyone to his own choices but you might like to think about what a 'bug' is and which beneficial 'bugs' are now dead
if it's in a mix it may not have a name.
I can do fuzzy photos as well
excluding tender plants I think the right time to sow anything is when the seed pods open, or the seeds become loose on the seed head. That's when the plant sows them.
and NOTHING hardy needs extra heat
could we see a few more of the leaves please
