With little knowledge, I'm slowly turning an acre field into a garden! This is my first gardening attempt, so there's such a lot to learn! 🐝🦋🌻

I love this! I split it this spring so out hadn't grown as tall this year thank goodness! I think the birds may be eating the petals though, or something is!

Wow! 8 ft is very tall. Sometimes I see white flowers as yellow, so I have to ask if its yellow. Looks to be a soft yellow. Its lovely

@columbiariver it's a pale lime yellow. This year after splitting it's only about 6ft. The birds kept trying to land on the long flower stems and snapping them off last year.

@clipperty does yours grow really tall too? It's a lovely colour isn't it!

It looks like cephalaria but it's hard to tell by this pic. Does it has small blackish buds?

SylviaDavies

@happycanuck not yet. If I remember rightly, the flower last year was a pale green?

Cephalaria is usually a pale yellow flower
