    It's a foxglove with a horizontal leaning isn't it?

    Is that a cobaea clambering up a foxglove?

    Foxglove and...?

    Most of my garden has a touch of horizontal this year GD. Too much weatherimage

    I've got a lot of leaning stuff. I have also planted some Thunbergia alata to grow up the lilies when they have done.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    It's a codonopsis Dove, C. lanceolata.

    The deep red Persicaria amplexicaulis always falls over, the lighter pink, never, though they're both the same height. I wonder if I could contain a patch of deep pink within a circle of the lightone  or whether it would look silly
