Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Never heard of that one. Its been in our garden for years and I have never seen it in flower. My wife is looking it up in her garden reference book.
Thanks for the info.

Yes its in flower on the edge of our garden. I have never seen it in flower before in the 16 years we have lived here, hence my post.

Apparently it likes deep and moist soil. It is situated in a hedge that borders a paddock that has been really boggy this year its only just drying out now . I guess the water may have triggered the flowering.

I spend hours pulling these up. They breed like rabbits and grow in amongst the paving and everywhere. So my name is blinking nuisance. But Harold is quite correct, plus you can add Granny's Bonnet to the list of common names.

Thanks for all the names.

So its Aquilegia, Columbine or Granny's Bonnet.

You learn something new every day.

Dave,

Lovely images. I had not come across the common name before, knowing it only as Rhodotus palmatus.

A different take on a Poppy flower bud. A slide copy of a shot from Cheshire in the 80's.

Lovely flower.

I have one which needs staking as it is in bud and will shortly burst forth. The flowers are too big for the stems. Each year it rains s soon as the flowers open. Which is then too much for even the stakes,

It looks like your has enjoyed a shower without bending. Must make them tougher in the North.

I took a picture of mine last year if you would like to se it.

We will shortly be in the thick of garden flowers. Hopefully share them here.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

It was getting some support from another dead twig underneath so it hadn't bent too much. I removed it for the picture.

We have a few more about to come into flower soon and like you, we always end up using a small metal stake to support them and still they bend under their own weight. They don't last long which is a shame.

Lets see yours from last year.

Peter,

It seems to me that your duty is clear. Pull the buds off before they open and we will all enjoy better summer weather. A small sacrifice for the benefit of the many.

Harold

A favourite of mine from a super walk on a marvellous sunny day in 2006, brings back memories. The E1/14-45. Oh the nostalgia!
