If the bark has gone it will die but that thin papery layer comes off naturally. I don't know the himalayan birch but as the native one matures the base of the trunk gets brown and cracked in appearance.

Have you got a photo?

bekkie it doesn't creep me out but I don't find it attractive

Interesting but ugly. But I have to admit that goes for a lot of those very large flowered things we find offered now

Pros don't have much time to faff around, that's true

Some of them don't even have time to think about what they're doing before they act.

Just the one would make a genetic mutation  Then the next generation would show if it persisted.

I think I'll be waiting til next year to find out though, all the rest are behaving in a normal digitalis manner, lots of leaves, no sign of a flower spike.

My money is on fasciation

I love pulmonaria and so do the bees, an excellent plant for shade and never a problem to remove if it spreads to much.

But the centaurea

A nice blue, but deep rooted and as gg says, short flowering. Mine usually falls over before it flowers.
