I agree with nut.  I would get rid of it now.  Don't put another in that spot though. It's often an opportunity, when a plant is past it's best, to redesign the area.  Stefan, maybe think of putting some perennials there and revamp it?

Summer has arrived

Sunningdale variegated is a superb foliage variety with white flowers.  Plant next to purple or black Heuchera. Jumble hole is my fav...check it out.  Venice is one I want to add

New gardening programme

Hopefully it's a new series.  I think it is.  I like this format though and the other presenters get their hands dirty

It may be a makeover show but I remember last year it was sentimentally done ...a feel good prog I thought

Anyone know what it is ?

Hello folks.  At first I thought it was a fuschia....judging by the first photo. Looking at the next pictures I think it is phygelius.  Not sure about African Queen though because its quite a vigorous, strong growing plant.    Are there dwarf varieties?   Or, as Salino said perhaps they are suckers....that would be my guess too.  The foliage looks a bit anaemic and stunted as though it is a sucker.  Looks like others there too. I gave up growing phygelius few years back because they did sucker and I will not grow anything that's invasive in this way.
