    The tall ones in the first pic are delphiniums, Alan.  Just about to flower by the looks of it. image

    I'm not sure about the 2nd one - possibly daylilies (Hemerocallis) as the leaves of those are around for months before the flowers start appearing and they are quite rampant growers.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I'd agree with Bob. Delphiniums - great looking specimens. Second pic looks like daylilies to me too. The foliage can be quite hefty on them.

    My crocosmia is more upright than Alan's appears to be so don't think that's it.

    Can't help otherwise, soz image

    Hi all,would you believe it iv been trying to grow Delphiniums from seed with no luck at all and iv got a bed full,i think im loseing lately,and the others the daylillies  weve got stacks of them, perhaps a thinning out might be good although they do keep the weeds at bay, Once again im very thankful for  all the help,i wish my camera had a better camera on it so many thanks for all that AGAIN image its sunny ere in Norfolk.

  • I thought the first were aconitum - how can you tell the difference? They look so similar!

    tbf I thought the top ones were aconitums as well. I think I would be able to tell the difference in the flesh (or leaf) but not from the photo

    Now you mention it, I had another look at a cleaned-up and resized image of the flowers at top right (see below) and I think they are aconitums, so keep trying with those delphinium seeds, Alan! image
