Located with a distant view of the River Deben in Suffolk and open to meadows. I am trying to merge the garden with the wild indigenous plants.

PlantID #notmygarden does anyone know what this impressive huge plant might be at our local open day? It’s well over 2 metres tall and the see-through quality creates a stunning effect!

I can't zoom in to see the flowers and leaves but could it be #thalictrum of some sort?

Does it have big leaves? It looks very much like the flower sprays of Crambe cordifolia but you would need to look at the leaves to see if they are big - the flowering time is right as mine at work are also flowering now 👍🏼

Osteospermon dead heading a bit like the fourth bridge..... just removed dozens! These overwintered outside next to the house and continued to flower all through the year #longblooming

They are lovely! Are they quite drought tolerant?

@HM2T they are pretty hardy and will hang on in there, but produce much smaller blooms if not watered Hannah

Osteospermum snuggled up to the house still flowering, albeit much smaller than in the summer! #latebloomer

Getting more of a colour to reflect the name “spring lemon”! Looks so different day to day

Do you think they are ok to leave outside now? I've been bringing them indoors for the night but the colour seems to be going dull. Not sure if it's from lack of light or they are just going over to make space for the next wave. 😊

@ublaszko Mine has been in the border since I bought it about 4 weeks ago Urszula. Sometimes one flower is a strong pink next to a lemon one. I guess the type of soil you grow in effects the colour???

Mine is in a container as I didn't want to loose it to late frost. I actually forgot to bring it in one day last week and I wonder if that was since the colours have faded. This is the first year I've had them so not sure what to expect. Might leave them outside full time now and let them get on with it.

@sadieberg I know Vivian..... the label says pink with a hint of lemon. As you can see on the underside of the petal, there is some yellow!
