picture taken slightly higher to show lilies...they match the gaillardias, hopefully, thus the reason for planting the g's there

about bloomin' time too.  A garden prog on tv just about plants, associating them, discussing them and talking about the different varieties.  A real indulgence spread over an hour every week with experts in discussion.  A q & a feature too 

heck!  I forgot to say when its on.  I'll get back folks 

I would like to identify a very tall plant I saw in minehead at may bank

I think Dove may well be correct.  Echiums vary in height......if damaged they will be shorter.  Also if growth interrupted.  In Cornwall they can be amazingly tall

Thanks Davids....  40 degrees?    We are expecting a heatwave this week...30 plus in the south east but prob 25 here.  Roll on this wonderful summer 

bit premature with that photo Fairy.  I have 3 lilies with just about same colouring as gaillardias that have just opened up.  Knew there was a reason for planting gaillardia there.  Wont post that again though. deep crimson you say?  Lobelia cardinallis?  But I like the salvia too fairy

Margaret,,what variety, do you know?  The taller ones prob will flower next year.  Mine are mainly dwarf varieties that are already in flower

Yes best in fhe ground for sure.  They want some moisture in the summer though.  No expert on kniphofias......this is first year for me...but I have thoroughly checked out ideal comditions for them
