I am the owner of a garden that is built on things that have been dumped in the past. It's still sinking in places after 22 years of our residence. The main culprits in the long term sinking are buried tree branches. They have a very long breakdown time. 


Identify my plant please

Photo was c**p

the stems are green in the main but red around where the leaves join.

I wouldn't put too much importance on the red, plants grown drier and in the sun will be redder that those grown wetter in the shade. Mine have too much shade now.

There'll probably be more ID people around later on, see what they think. 

You're right about the willowherb, different flower shape

There re so many sempervivums and they all look much the same to me. A bit of red here, a touch of white there. But 100s of different names for all that

The flowers are all wrong for a willowherb gg


what is this plant?

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 14:59

It doesn't keep moles away I can promise you. I have both

I thought it looked like E. lathyris but george says it's been in the same place for a couple of years so I assumed perennial.

But last year plus this year is two years and I think Chrissie is right

If not, a good photo of the leaves so we can see the shape is a help. Pull off the dead stuff out of the way
