agapanthus/nerine bowdenii

Posted: 01/04/2014 at 23:24

I live near Peterborough Tracey. Most winters minus 7 or 8C, Occasionally minus 13C or lower, On the dry side except for the last 12 months or so.

can someone please help me identify this plant :)

Google images only want to show flowers. Even if I search for leaves or seeds or roots, I get flowers.

The leaves look right and the tops look right, I had doubts about the way the stems all seem to come from the ground individually in the pic. It's too dark to go and see what mine look like. In my memory there's a hard lump of stem at the bottom and the stems come off that.

Something strange happens when I enlarge the pic. I get an extreme close-up of the front of your car

Mine flower and they don't get any special treatment. They were in the ground for years and flowered. Then they had to be potted up out of the way of drain digging. They flowered. I might plant the back out again soon. I could also remove 3 or 4 well established campanulas  from the pot first.  The agapanthus would appreciate that

They're agapanthus.

Nerines are pink or white

Is that the plant that helps you sleep Nut?

 

Valeriana officinalis, yes. In theory. Never tried it. Don't know whether to chew the leaves flowers or roots. 

 maybe

I think Valerian, Centranthus ruber, not valeriana.
