Worst year for rust

Posted: 02/10/2014 at 21:45

Worst I've seen, have a real problem with one particular variety "Heron" in borders, completely defoliated in August but in good growth now and flowering, others very little and some no trouble at all. Didn't prune hard this year because of the mild winter so thought that may be a factor.

I have a pair of Felco no 4, which are annoying for professional use as no easy blade tensioning nut. I had a pair of no 2 but lost them in a 2 tonne pile of compost and haven't recovered them yet. Am now using no13, the big ones for big hands, I prune a lot of roses and Buddleja so the tougher the better, I have broken many cheapos but never any of the Felcos but have replaced blades and springs and the odd nut!

I think the shade might be the issue, try moving to a sunnier spot when time is right.

If that doesn't help try moving g the plant????

 Looks more like this to me but with less flowers, foliage is very distinctive.

You can buy seeds in UK too.

Gilia capitata, an annual wildflower.

Ivy or Virginia creeper for me Beaus mum, unless that would cause problems with neighbors, then maybe a wire trellis with something like old mans beard or a Montana on.

I kind of agree with you on the arrangement of the flowers nut, too many in a cluster really! But I am going from memory and the sun's been frying my brain lately????!
