If mine get very crowded they stop flowering. Maybe splitting up would help

If they germinate they'll be healthy plants. If they've been stored cool and dry they should be OK to germinate

The cultivars like 'Ruby Cloud' don't seed reliably true but you should get some nice ones even so. 

agree with Lyn re cold

It's Ok unless it gets out of hand and it sounds like yours has

Only the mature (non cliinging) growth of any ivy will get the flowers.


Anyone grow Agapanthus in border

Mine was in the ground for years, I only potted up to get it out of the way of drain digging. I'll plant it out again soon. I think it looked better in the garden but I'm not very good at looking after things in pots. I forget them

You don't really need to ask permission to post the pics but it can confuse things if pics of other plants get posted. Especially on ID threads

Tree paeonies are woody by nature. No wood, no flowers. If you want a yellow one that doesn't get woody there's always Molly the Witch

Might be that one,aym, No label, except 'yellow peony' and I can't tell from just a flower. I got it from an NGS open garden years ago.

re seeds, remind me at seeding time. They need sowing fresh and over-wintering outside. That way they germinate in the first spring rather than eventually or never.


New to the forum, advice please

Hi there, welcome to the forum.

We had a thread on this recently, have a look here and see if it's any help

Thanks Anomander.

I'm not completely sure what mine are, doubtful origins. 

The yellow one has huge flowers and 6'' seed pods in a good year. The red one has much smaller flowers and was bought as delavyi. It has babies in yellow, blotchy orange and, rarely, red.

 I had to show this one off again, though it's one of the herbaceous ones, P cambessedesii,none too hardy. Those seeds germinated freely last year. The mother plant isn't mine and I don't know if I'll be able to keep it in a cold GH when we get a real winter.

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.
