Elder Black Beauty no longer flowers

I think you did Sheila

there are 2 ways of growing elder, you either let them be and they grow large and flower, or you cut them back to get bigger leaves but few or no flowers

Anyone growed Red Hot Poker before?

They're not too slow from seed and that's OK for the species. If you want one of the cultivars it will have to be buy and divide.

I don't like them much either. I had one called 'Shining Sceptre' but it only lived up to its name for a few days before looking nothing much.

I have one called 'Toffee Nose' which is as near to subtle as they get, I quite like it and haven't dumped it yet but probably wouldn't buy it again

Plant ID please

they look like something with slightly furry leaves on the grey side of green to me. Have they got a soft hairy feel or is it an illusion iamto?

I don't think it's anything that's been mentioned so far.
