I have been given a cutting prof a plant shrunk, which is called a golliwogg. It has green leaves and a blue flower. Not exactly sure what sort of plant it is, any ideas please? Thank ou..

    Sorry, Sarah, that's a new one on me!  Am posting this just so your question stays at the top of the 'latest posts' lists, in the hope that someone else might know more than me...

    The only golliwog plant I could find on a search is a hemerocallis, it's not even vaguely blue. Was surprised to find anything. Didn't think it was a word we used now.

    Can you describe the shrub Sarahlou, is it evergreen? large or small. What sort of flower does it have, what shape?

  • Any chance of a photo of the parent? or of the cutting?

     Ideas please? Thank you..

  • Looks like a cornflower to me from your upside down photo image

    Not a shrub but an annual but it is very pretty and once you have it in your garden you will always have it.  I love it, it is very pretty.

    Could be the perennial cornflower centaurea montana. It's not the annual cornflower whichever way you look at it
