hard to tell without a pic but wonder about fasciation
I can see soak for summer flowering anemones planted in spring but it would be a strange UK winter if the corms didn't get soaked naturally
It's not clever, it's almost unconscious (like me). I see a picture and a word comes into my mind. I've never seen fuchsia gall mite, and have no idea where that came from.
Same with a lot of plant IDs
no idea without seeing it. Unlikely but nothing's impossible. You'd need 2 frogs with faulty body clocks
Have a look at fuchsia gall mite.
A touch of autumn I think
I don't bother, they all come up.
how small is small?
Yes Dove, plumbaginoides has a 'softer' look (and feel) to the leaves
I can't see the over-all shape of the plant but the taller stems on the top left suggest C. willmottianum to me
