Thanks Bixy, knew there was something familiar about the stem I seen before but couldn't make the connection. Spindle tree family.

Thanks again much appreciated.

If it is, it's quite old.

I don't know what they are, but I just rooted a ton of them out of my raised bed, where they were very happy!

We haven’t gotten around to doing anything with the garden of the house we bought. We have a monster growing at the back wall that I need help to ID.

Thanks in advance

Photos were too large, didn’t realise the post had actually gone through!

First one is the monster, second is some kind of shrub I need help with too.

Echium pinniana - It is a monster - lives for two years, then dies, will grow to about 2 m in its second year - loved by bees but sheds prolific seed so you will be weeding "babies" for a long time. Google and see if you like the look of the plant in its second year - spectacular but a possible nuisance down the line with its offspring! Not native.

Sorry Toulouse - only looked at first picture - second one looks like a rhododendron to me, but others may disagree?

Echiums are beloved by many and not so popular with others - it is a spectacular plant though. The second one won't enlarge properly for me but looks like a rhodo of some sort.

Oh wow! That’s amazing, we’re very excited to see what colour it will be!! We’ll be leaving it where it is, no plans to do anything major with the garden for at least another year.

Thank you all!

There are some echiums growing in the garden in Farmleigh House.

Mostly pale blue but I saw them at the end of the season so they may have been more colourful earlier.

They must reach about 12 feet and are truly spectacular. You need lots of space and you will have to careful not to allow too many seedlings to develop.
Please do post photos when it flowers next year.

Will do!

No idea where it came from but sure it’s the most exciting thing that’s happened in months
