Help Identifying Unknown Plant Shoots

Posted: 29/06/2013 at 12:04

I'd be inclined to look after these as thoyugh they are VFTs Chompy. That true leaf looks as though it's developing something round the edge. wait a bit and give us another look. It may be some other carnivorius plant wrongly named. As Sara says it's difficult. I recognise seedlings of things I've grown (not VFT) but not otherwise

No, don't move them, they're biennials and will be finished when they've flowered. Save the seed and grow it, (or buy some more) where you want it for next year and future years

But the RHS does agree with what you did so maybe I'm wrong, long time since I planted one.

But pink buds should be above ground by now and growing. Maybe a good idea to pot upand nurture, you're not going to get anything much from it this year even if it's OK. You could plant something that's going to flower.

Mine are in pretty dry stony soil and don't have the shade they used to before some willows were felled. But they haven't had much sun to cope with since then and plenty of water. I shall see what happens next, may need to move them, might benefit from a split up, It's a huge clump now and I can't reach to puck off the sawfly larvae in the middle

Got lethargy this morning, hoping for improvement later. 

What are these?

Must be something that flowers fairly late in the season, can't see buds yet. Haven't got phlox, when do they flower?

The buds should be above the ground.

Done, I totally agree. Won't affect my immediate neighbourhood as the farmer mows the verges like a bloody lawn all year. Then the inside edge and sometimes right across the verge is a brown line of dead growth from his sprays.

Definitely won't be getting rid of it then Dove, could be very useful. Vampires can be a bit of a pest and I've never found the appropriate treatment til now.

Vervain is Verbena officinalis Sara, nothing else.

Not a lot to it though I wouldn't want to get rid of it.
