Saw this yesterday in one of the gardens. I was taken with it, like the blue green leaves and flowers.
Could someone tell me what is?
Best to put a picture up...........
Oh 'eck, they're those thingummies I can never remember the name of - one of the gardening magazines gave some seeds away earlier this year - Oh flippit
I've not seen them before
I think it's Cerinthe major. It self sets quite easily.
that's the one, Cerinthe major purpurescens
That's it It was on the tip of my tongue
Yup Cerinthe, like you Dove I can never remember the name. For about 30 years I could never remember the name 'Aubretia', it kept coming into my brain as 'Anchovy'. Then I made myself always think of some old Brit actor in 1930's Hollywood, called C. Aubrey Something and associated the name with the plant. Even now I have to think of his face to name that d...n plant.
