I've had another look at images. That's not it. The plant I want has a panicle growing up from the base on a stalk. The acorus calamus shows a flower then a seed head growing out of a leaf. Mags
I think that might be it, nut cutlet. The plant I am thinking about had dark brown panicles. I guess this acorus calamus goes brown. But it is described as having a fragrance of cinnamon, nutmeg and something else spicy which is what I remember. Wikki says it has 'an aphrodisiac scent' - yes- it does! Thank you very, very much. Mags
Sorry - photo impossible. I had the plant 5 or 6 years ago and threw it out the following March when I thought it had died. Silly me for being so hasty! I don't know what came over me to do that. I didn't know anything about patience then. Mags
2 of my local garden centres have them. Keep searching!
Several years ago I bought a grass with no name. I would love to know what it was called so I can try to get a replacement. Height: approx. 100cm. The panicles were dark brown and resembled bulrushes. It had a wonderful spicy fragrance. Sorry, don't know what shade of green the leaves were but I don't think they were long and arching. If anyone can give me a clue I would be very pleased. I've looked at the images on floralinq website but can't fund it. One of penesetum looks close but there is no mention of the fragrance. Thank you, Mags
I grew Prizewinner R-beans this year. Lovely long straight pods and they are still wonderfully tender and almost strong-free! I've always grown Scarlet Emporer in the past but I will stick to Prizewinner from now on. Mags
Thanks a lot fidget. My task for this afternoon on this beautiful sunny day! Mags
I'm a fan of Beechgrove too. I like it because it is basic stuff anyone can have a go at and not fancy, exotic stuff that only experts with specialist facilities would attempt. Mags
The C.Bells are grown from seed and I have 6 lovely strong little plants and 6 smaller ones. The J.Ladder is one plant I bought. Can these all go out now or keep till spring (in cold frame or garage?) . Also, will the J.Ladder seed all over the place? !! Thanks, Maggie
I like to get my indoor ones planted at end August to get them into flower for Christmas. I love the perfume of them, too.
I wonder when others get them started? Mags
