Brand new member here so please be gentle

Can anyone tell me if there is a record for the tallest digitallis only this year has been my best ever for both height and spread

The tallest one at present is just under 9 feet

    ..oh that's nothing....I've got one 15 feet 3 inches and counting...


    ...sorry,...just joking.... sounds great...don't know about records...would you like to show us a photo?...I 'd like to see you know the variety name?...I always like the old Excelsior hybrids personally...

    Also like the way you've painted up your shed/trellis/bird box...

    .fantastic... I wonder if it's the shade of the willow that's drawing it up..? it looks like the Excelsior strain doesn't it? ...whatever... I also like that little corner with lots of little things going on...nice Aquilegia's too..
