    @Tina Duffill You say it was given to you as a flowering plant can you remember the colour of the flowers please?
    Building a garden is very personal. It's not quite the same as installing a boiler.

    Might it be a lobelia of some type?

    It does look a bit like Lobelia @Uff , but it's got opposite leaves from the look of it. Lobelias are alternate as far as I know.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    It's driving me mad because l'm sure l know it. I'm thinking Rudbeckia or Campanula but l don't think that's right.

    Phlox, maybe? Bit of a long shot though.
    The reddish coloration reminds me of veronicastrum but I'm not sure about the leaf shape.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
  • Just been out to have another look each leaf is about 2 to 3 " long and looks slightly furry with a reddish tinge... appreciate all ur help btw :-)
