Mine aren't fasciated, just pathetic
Plants love gaps in paving and gravel and other inhospitable looking sites.
In my experience poppies don't like pots much.
I've got lobelia in a paving gap, I don't know where that came from, it's years since I grew any
Sounds good. I shall put it on the calendar but it's more probably than definitely at the moment
That's nice Mark, is it one of the annual poppies?
I don't know why but I know what you mean. I had to google this one to see which species it is. It's V. phoeniceum. I have a purple one of this species and it's never made much of an impact. It looks as though it should but it doesn't.
sad little flowers
Ah. A bit wetter up there than in East Anglia Maybe not for me.
Thanks hogweed, maybe I would be able to grow it. I've got plenty of shade.
This is a very dry area of the country, where are you?
I didn't think the flowers were quite right punkdoc but I had a rummage round and found this one
Darmera peltata 'Nana'
So glad you enjoyed it. Exhausting but fun
Does it need damp soil? I've never got one because I always see it beside water and I haven't got any reliably damp soil. We saw some at Barnsdale. Lovely foliage plant after the flowers.
