Bargain Japanese tree peonies

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 22:14

Bigger than what? 

My yellow one is about 8 foot or more but it's more shrub (ie multi-stemmed) than tree. The red one 5-6 feet. same multi-stemmed.

Fast Growing climber plant

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 21:29

It roots down where it spreads over the ground. It's a bit of a pain to untangle from fences and if it's been there a long time the original root will be quite big. But compared to some plants it's easy to get rid of. Yes, find the root, you couldget it ground out if it's too big to dig

Fancy ivy cultivars have different coloured leaves and different shapes.

My tree paeonies aren't temperamental

They behave very well, putting up with a major hack when necessary. The flowering season is short but the leaves are beautiful and the seed pods fantastic. 

and the seeds are fertile.  lots of babies.

I find the flowers last longer if they're in a bit of shade. Not sure the herbaceous ones  (like Sarah Bernhardt) would like that.

Copper Birch or Green Beech Hedging???

Beech is what you want for hedging, copper or green. Lovely choice.

Birch is not a hedging plant, lovely tree though

 

Sorbus garden?

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 09:31

Don't do it.

Sorbus doesn't make a hedge, even a wild and loose one. Allowed to grow up, then be cut back to open the view, will make an unattractively shaped lump. Have a few sorbus trees where they won't spoil the view and hedge with something more 'hedgy'.

Dracunculus not Ranunculus

Yes, it stinks but only to attract its fly pollinators. Then the stink goes but still purple.

Probably best not outside the kitchen window.
