What is this? Found a root & put it in a pot in June & it’s now flowering. I thought it might be Astilbe?

Allium advice re. planting location

Question from Frank Barker

In forum: Ornamental plants

Most advice for Alliums suggest a sunny well drained position is required. The questions is must the leaves be in a sunny position (they come well ahead of the flower) or is it the flowers (about 4ft tall) which would grow up through the overhanging branches (good support) and then be in the sun when it came to flower.

Identify if possible

Question from Frank Barker

In forum: Identify a plant

Been seeing this lovely bush in a neighbours garden for the last month (6th Oct today). It's on an East facing fence line and must be about 7ft tall. Owner doesn't know what it is and I'd like to identify so I can get one.

A cherry tree from a pip

Comment from Jan Helle

In forum: Identify a plant

The starlings really enjoyed the cherries on my tree scattering the efficiently cleaned stones all over the place. I think the attached photo is from one of these stones. Is it a baby cherry tree> Will it develop into a full grown tree bearing fruit?

Comment from Jan Helle

In forum: Identify a plant

Saw this in a neighbours garden. It's over 6 feet tall and in mid summer had huge conical shaped white flowers that turned to a delicious burnt pink. It is certinly a tree. I saw a smaller version in a pub garden that I post here

Pretty Little Unknown Plant.

Question from Tina

In forum: Identify a plant

Pretty little plant that may have been brought in by visiting wildlife to pond. It's taken root in one of last year's baskets which has been sheltered next to my raised pond. I've noted it's growth for a couple of months now and it's growth rate has increased the last few days. The flowers close by evening and are similar to californian poppies but much tinier. 1st picture taken 26th August, still flowering a month later, additional pics taken this week. I'm in the North West of England, so cooler climate here. The bees and wasps seem to enjoy it's flowers during the day. Any ideas please?
