Any ideas what this plant is? I grew it some years ago as an annual bedding plant. Can't remember the name . Have searched for it but no joy. It almost looks like a type of Physallis but that has not helped me. These are aboput 4' tall, but the ones I grew were only half that size.

Any ideas?

Thanks all.

I have been misting every morning and evening, but this doesn't seem to help much.

The parasitic mite seems about the best idea, but temperatures are dropping and they seem to need it to be hot.

Will try outside.

Hi All

Any ideas for the control or eradication of Red Spider Mite in my conservatory?

It is only for ornamentals.

Datura, Hibiscus and Bouganvillia.

First one is Mouse eared hawkbit ( grim the collier ) and second is Phlox.

Almost certain

Climber wanted for a shady wall.

Hi daydaisy

There is a Hydrangea (Anomala Petiolaris) that is self clinging and will flower on a shady wall.

Is quite vigorous once started and will cover a quite large wall if needed. 

Hope this helps
