About 12” tall this was flowering in the overgrown verge next to a telegraph pole. It is beautiful and fear it will be mown before I can dig it up!,

Anyone know what this is ?

Question from Tracy Meechan

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi
I have cleared a space in my front garden, partial shade, stoney soil and this largeish plant / bush has sprung up in just a couple of weeks - it is pretty and soft but growing very fast, it has no flowers as yet but is over a meter high already with many stem coming up from the base, stems are purpley / maroon leaves are in pairs and shaped like beech tree leaves on ly not as thick. Any ideas ? I live in the south of england and we have had lots of sunny weather recently - I don't want to dig it out if it will flower and am very curiuos about it.

Creeping Bellflower

Question from Nadine Gail Gressett

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi there I have a garden full of what I believe to be Creeping Bellflower. In Colorado, they can be pretty invasive, and I have dug up almost all of them to give room to plant other things. I'm saving a small spot in the garden as I do think they are pretty.

Can you tell me which plant to put them under on my plant list? Can you also tell me your suggestions for not letting them take over my garden?

Thanks a ton!
