Yet more ids please - much appreciated in advance:
This was a gift few years ago:
What's this growing in this pot of lillies?
This in front of lupins is in various places in the garden
The top picture is Cistus x purpureus (Rock rose)
Sorry can't help with the other 2
Picture 1 is Cistus purpurea. In the second picture it looks like the seed pods of bluebells. Not sure about picture 3 but it could be purple toadflax.
2. Looks like bluebells (over)
3. Purple toadflax I think
Could the third one possibly be Liatris? It looks very similar to the ones I have growing.
Thank you everybody. I really appreciate - you guys are really amazing. I will keep you updated. Whether liatris or toadflax I am very happy and I hope they are those! Looked at some photos - what pretty plants! I wonder how they got there! Except for number 2 - removed a whole load of bluebells two weeks ago.
Oh by the way on picture 3 does anyone know what the plants (yellow flowers) are on either side of the plant I asked about? they have spread, also have one in red but I don't like them very much.
is it a primula?
Looks like a cowslip. You can get red ones.
