Hello I found this pic on chiltern seed's facebook. I'm waiting for a response from them but just wondered in the meantime if anyone on here knows what plant these flowers belong to?

I'm trying to attract lots of bumblebees for next year and this one seems to be popular looking at the pics.

 These are the only pics so no leaves or nothing.

thanks victoria again and forester. It does look like a stock from what I came up with google. I am going to have a word with the seed supplier as to why the perennial seeds are all turning out to be annuals

Yes your right another one that grew out of the mixed perennial bag. Hmm well it's indoors which accounts for the straggly trailing growth. Why do none of my plants look like the pictures on google? .

Oh well I'll see how long it stays with me. Thanks victoria sponge

I'm just lucky I guess that the bedroom gets very warm when it's sunny outside as I don't have a greenhouse.

Anyway these are the flowers which have opened. So this is definitely snapdragon?

Hi Victoria. Yes I'm a bit excited to see what kind of flowers I get and then see if I can ID it.

Philippa I only have two. Ones a bout two years old an african baobab and the other is grandidieri madagascan one. That is a bout a year old. I'm always surprised when they grow back in the spring. In the winter they loose all their leaves and look like dead sticks almost. Here are some pics. Smaller one is the madagascan. The african one has been getting pruned but I think I will let it get as big as it wants.

My mahogany is taller than my friend who is 6ft3 lol.
