Hi all

I have these in a border which I rejuvenated last year, I dug them up and found some good sized tubers so replanted them in a couple of places. they have shot up everywhere. they grew ok last year but the foliage didn't die down at all over winter.

I figured a dahlia originally and they flowered very well couple of years ago but I thought dahlias died off in winter. I also thought delphinium foliage possibly?

before I dug them up they grew to approx. 5-6ft tall

Any ideas please

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Would say Aconitum napellus, monk's hood...

    Did they stay at that height and green all winter? or as a bit of green at the base?

    they were tubers only mid summer last year, shoots approx. a foot high through winter to 3-4ft now.
