Start from the camera icon, top right over the typing box. Don't try and upload too large a photo, it won't go.

Name the plant.

I've just seen a photo elsewhere Polly, all the shrubs cut like bits of hedge, it looked awful. Plants need to be allowed to grow and flourish Think shape and style, not just flowers.

you get a better shaped shrub in the long term if you cut some old stems right back to base and leave the rest as they are. Shrubs that have been cut back to a height loose all their natural shape and style and just look hacked.

without all those mixed genes you won't get the big, bright flowers, wild species aren't like that. Same with salvias. We have to dig deep into our pockets, buy one plant and take cuttings or divisions.
