thanks  for all the info about my shrub (and the spelling of it as well). Have you been able to keep yours from spreading by pruning it.

mine has taken 6 years, but it is lovely all year, as you say it's foliage is tropically luscious. Thanks for the name. Is it possible to prune it to keep it from spreading

                    I went to an open garden six years ago and bought a seedling peony plant. This year it has flowered and is covered in the brightest yellow, almost semi double blooms. Anyone know what it is most likely called.

At Tony Bucklands flower festival last week end,  I am sure he said that if you want to replace a rose with another one in the same place sprinkle the new root with mycorrhizal fungus. That's  the new wonder powder to invigorate growing power. (It's new to me anyway) give plenty of food, probably blood, fish and bone and keep well watered in the first season. Check it out.

We have had a problem too. I think the frogs are still in the pond and living off the tadpoles. Also, we have dragon fly lavae that I'm told eats anything.

Sorry, it is now squashed in the bin. There are plenty of web sites that give you all the info on what to look for. The leaves are very robust and tough looking, dark green. the stems are not ribbed as cow parsley and there is staining of dark maroon up the stem in bloches not a purple flush. The stem when cut has larger hollow, in cow parsley its thicker with small hollow. I'm told they are very poisonous.
