one of my new resolutions artjak. Currently culling the dirty pink and mauve aquilegias to make way for this year's new ones.. Achillea grandiflora, magnificent, but not when horizontal. Syringa pabaliana (which may be spelled almost like that), lovely flowers, grotty bush. anyone want it? you'll have to collect.

There are a certain number of us (and I'm one of them) that love the challenge of a plant ID

I love them, I weed out the dirty pinks and mauves. When you've got enough don't let them seed any more.

certainly isn't Miss Willmott's Ghost, I don't think it's any sort of eryngium, spines are in the wrong place. doubt if it's the solanum either.

Asking a local resident might be a good way forward.

Phuopsis stylosa. Interesting smell from this even in winter, I like it.

When aquilegia seeds are ripe, the cases will have opened and seeds fall out into your hand. Sow them straight away outdoors in the shade. They'll germinate very quickly because they haven't become dormant and you'll have plants big enough to survive next winter.

What sort of aquilegia have you got? Some are smaller.

Geranium pratense 'Purple Haze'

Seed raised plants from cultivars are always going to be hit and miss. Always have a tendency to seed back to the basic species

Your're right Fg, a blue rose would be really naff, worse than Blue Moon and that's bad enough.
