That plant is some sort of Hebe. It likes sun, shelter and not too much moisture.

Agastache Black Adder

I have stopped growing Agastache. Used to grow each year from seed, but none ever survived the Winter.

Morning all. Weather seems undecided as yet.

Have tidied up again, this time in readiness for the cleaner coming.

Sorry to hear about your orthopaedic problems Hosta, my back does not seem to be getting better either, just as we head towards Autumn and the busiest time in the garden.

Have a lovely time Dove and everyone else.

Does sound like a Leycesteria, although shouldn't really identify without a picture.

Sadly DD and others, you can't choose your family.

Morning all.

Sunny, but quite chilly this morning, where is the late summer we were promised?

Lots of paper work to catch up on today, I can't keep throwing it on a pile, thinking it will do itself. When I was a young doctor living in hospital accommodation I used to do that with shirts and then take the one from the bottom of the pile claiming it was clean. Eventually one of the cleaners took pity on me and took my shirts home with her to wash each week.

She was also the one who used to knock on my door each morning, " cup of tea Dr, will it be 1 or 2 this morning?

Have a lovely day everyone.

As Liri says, we need to see the leaves to be sure of the diagnosis.

It is very unusual for honey fungus to attack annuals or perennials.

Hiya MIL gone, house quiet again.

Lovely weekend, but I wouldn't want to see her too often! I picked her a bunch of flowers to take back up to Scotland, that earned me mega brownie points.

Sorry NOT vigilantism in any way. A Paediatric doctor was lynched not long ago, by a gang who had heard he was a paedophile.

Right minded people, are not always right.

Terrible things are happening out there, but proper justice must be served, it shows our superiority over the barbarians.

What is this please?

The leaves are not right for Celosia imo.

I agree with fb., it is on of the Amaranthus, but without the flower being more developed, I cannot tell which one.
