Bought a bush last year and want to buy another one but lost the name tag
2 foot high and stopped growing ...perannual...woody...small trumpet like red heads with dark green foliage..attarcts bees ...looks like a lavender head but smaller
How possible would it be to send a photo? Could it be a sort of salvia?
Could it be a Phygelius.Very like a Fuschia, but smaller trumpet like flowers. The red ones are more common than the yellow one I have. Flowers for months and months. I take the labels off plants I buy and keep them in a seed tin my brother bought me. Reminds me of the plants I have had successes and failures with. Mainly slugs!
If you take the salvia flowers and attach them to a rounded bush and not an upright plant thats almost it
Dont have a mobile as I hate them and 23 YO IT Expert son has fled the nest
Rounded bush though Verd. Are penstemons not more upright? You'll certainly know better than me!
I thought Wiegela at first but the 'lavender head' thing threw me. Without a pic we're you- know -whatting in the wind NewBoy!
I used this sites selection process a few years ago to chose a bush that attracts bees and it gave me 1. A French Lavender 2. Cistus and the other one
I will take the flower to a GC tomorrow and let you know
Took the flower head to the local GC and its a Hebe
Thanks to you all for your assistance
Verd- You keep your mox out of this.....
Wouldn't have guessed Hebe from the 'trumpet like heads' description though.
