Any Ideas Please...

Seeds are just not my strength nut.  I have no patience, alas  I get satisfaction from cuttings but I guess from seed it's even better.

Hey carmic, yes post other pictures.  One way or another here you will find out what you have.

Any Ideas Please...

Confetti I think nut.  Currently have this one in a pot.....undecided exactly where to put it.  Want a purple shrub near it....euphorbia rubra, pit Tom thumb or berberis pur nana.  Or maybe a red phormium.  Or ophiopogon  or uncinia in the foreground..    Decisions, decisions.

Izzy, why not just cut it hard again?  Flowers at this time are valued a lot more I think.  I guess it's a paniculata type!  

What's the star in your garden right now

KEF, I also grow  miscanthus  Gold Bar.  It's an improvement on Zebrinus being more compact and more vivid horizontal bars on the leaf.  I grow both but I prefer the newer one.   To grow grasses you clearly have excellent taste KEF 

Fairy, I'm beginning now to like tiarellas a lot more now. I grow skyrocket and pink bouquet.  Must get few more.  Yours looks happy there

Lulu, they spread vigorously.  You will be able to dig up numerous pieces in a couple of years.  Think Berghill is right......divided pieces will come true but seedlings ( not been aware they seed very easily though) could be hit n miss in quality.  And take longer.

Hiya woody....thank goodness there's a bloke here to talk real garden matters!  The chatty threads are massed by gossipy gals.......oops!  

The national collection is near Penzance here in Cornwall.   Got a couple of dahlias on order for spring delivery.  If wanted I can get their details 

Little Ann, I think it best to leave them intact now and, yes, separate in spring.  Each tuber group needs a piece of stem, don't forget
